I'm just wondering how many mad people actually sit through entire contests?! On Saturday, I listened to all 12 bands at the European Brass Band championships, along with the morning bands (3), and lunchtime concert which makes a total of 16 bands. And my back is *still* aching. However, my friend Liz said her Mum listened to all 16 bands in the 1st section of the Yorkshire areas, which I think is even more impressive since they were all playing the same piece. Can anyone top that?
