    Wansbeck Music Festival 2010

    Yeah it is a shame it was cancelled, my pupils enjoy the solo and ensembles on the Saturday so were disappointed. The secretary said my entries were the only concrete ones they had received.

    English Nationals 2010

    Yeah, we're not there but no point in making a song and dance about it is there? Obviously there are other bands that deserve to be there above us so we can't really complain, can we? ;-)
