    There is no Sop vacancy there, I'm afraid, but Becontree Brass will be your closest band, just a few stops up the Central Line to Barkingside.

    Aveley and Redbridge are the top two bands in L&SC area. They are pretty evenly matched.

    Thanks Ben

    I came to rehearsal and was planning to come tonight but understand from David Lewis that the rehearsal is cancelled. Not sure on the position, thought rehearsal I attended went well, but Nigel asked if I played B flat and it appeared he was not keen.. not sure if the agenda was for me to play b flat or sop but am really looking for sop seat...don't know what to think. Perhaps you maybe able to clarify for me? He said he wanted to hear me play more, but spent all night sight reading and playing which I felt was ok considering the pieces. If I'm not up to it in the bands opinion there are no worries there I would just appreciate being told I guess.

    Hope to hear from you

    I am a talented sop player looking for a 1st section/championship band in london area having moved in February with work

    I obtained grade 8 at school with distinction and have played sop for 20 odd years. Before moving from Norfolk with work, was playing with 2nd section band who gained 1st section before I left. I then played with 1st section band just outside London in contests and concerts prior to starting job in central London. I enjoy all aspects of banding particularly contesting.

    I have my own instrument and transport and will travel for right opportunity. After a few disappointments I am seeking genuine soprano seat opportunities

    Look forward to hearing from any bands who can offer this
