    We don't have a Holiday on Good Friday in Belgium. We have a holiday next Monday ("Easter Monday" as we call it). It's the same in the Netherlands I think.

    It's not so bad. You can make many stupid jokes today, like saying "Good Friday" instead of "Good Morning"

    Count yourself lucky mate, if you'd arrived a week earlier you would have been in band practice this morning going through 'Music of the Sphere's' for the Folkstone concert tomorrow night.

    Oh yes. Haven't got the caravan this weekend, its being serviced, but May Day and Whit weekend bank holidays, we used to be able to go away in the van. Nowadays there's always something on with one or other band. Still, have caravan will travel, and usually end up having a "holiday" somewhere in the vicinity of the engagement. :rolleyes:

    I've just started a night shift :(

    If it wasn't double time I'd be even more upset though :)

    No work today but on an Easter theme yesterday I took part in the Maunday service at Manchester Cathedral. This was as a meber of the Yeomen of the Guard. From my position in the cathedral I had a good view of the 4 brass players who did the opening fanfare and descants. If any read this site they did very well, congratulations. At the rehersal a young lady told me that at least two were brass band players. Regards Barry
