    Sorry Peter, worth mentioning that it is Nick Hanover who is guest vocal soloist on the Thursday.

    Looks like a cracking Festival - hoping I can get time off to see YBS at the Rink on the Friday. Great place to listen to music and always an expectant, exicted crowd the night before the Nationals.

    Thanks John - I was going from the handbill I'd received through the post, and I didn't think matt looked right!

    I've also corrected the month in the heading from August to October :oops:

    I shan't be there for YBS as we'd already got our tickets for Dyke/Mnozil brass on the Saturday evening, and to do both would be a bit too much, especially with my dad travelling down from Coventry on the Friday..

    I've had a chance to go to this festival several times (it was Fodens and BAYV that were there before) and the festival is fantastic. If you are near to the area it is really worth the trip and not very far from the tube stop. Also, there is a nice pizza buffet nearby to grab lunch or dinner.

    The composer talk should be real interesting again this year...especially with the new Eden piece.

    Having heard John Pickard introduce some of his music in the past I'm sure the talk will be quite illuminating.
