    tMP Band, Hadleigh, Essex
    Saturday 9th April 2005

    For some time there have been requests for some sort of tMP activity to be arranged for those of us who are a little further south. In order to meet this demand, I have provisionally booked our hall at Hadleigh for a charity concert on 9th April 2005. It may seem a long way ahead, but it will give people a chance to put the date in their diaries, and also enables us to see what sort of interest there is.

    The proposal is that we meet for a rehearsal during the afternoon, share in a buffet-style tea and then present an early-evening concert, which would allow those who want to continue their socialising afterwards to do so. If there is not suficient response to put together a tMP band as such, then I propose that the event would still go ahead with some sort of scratch band, with any interested tMPers more than welcome to take part.

    As I've said, this is just a preliminary announcement, but feel free to comment on whether you are interested/available. A more detailed thread for responses will be posted nearer the time.

    Mea culpa - big error - date is April 9th, not March (I'll edit original now :oops: )

    Areas are 19th/20th March.

    Thanks for organising this one Peter. It's a great idea and hopefully it will be a huge success.

    Any hotels in the vicinity for those wanting to stop over?

    There'll be a car travelling from Shrewsbury, so if anyone want's a lift en route just shout!

    Hadleigh is very easy to get to - right on the A13, and just off the A127, about 7 miles from Southend. (Not far from Basildon, for those who've attended the Areas there).

    There's plenty of accommodation in various price ranges around, & I'll post details nearer the time.
