Colin Harding - EEb Bass

Lift would be needed from either sheffield or B/Ham Station

I think there'll be a lot of people wanting a lift from the station, any ideas?


Active Member
I'm almost certain I'm available, or can be. I should be able to say for definite in a day or two.

Ian Fishwick, 2nd Euph (but would rather play 1st or 2nd trombone)

We appreciate that this may cause some concern at the moment, but
once we have our tMP band we will be able to sort out any transport problems that arise.
We are working very hard behind the scenes collating as much information as possible and will post it here when it becomes available.

I'm sure venues etc have been sorted but it may be worth noting that BBC in Birmingham is now based at the Mailbox (about 100yds from New Street Station - and on the floor above my bosses!!!). Not sure on studios etc, but worth noting.

Thanks Darren,

The BBC are moving next year from their Pebble Mill studios to a new location in Birmingham called the Mail Box - however, they are still in negotiations with their landlords regarding when, what, etc etc. They are also looking to do the Children in Need show this year from that location, but need to negotiate this temporary occupation of a building not yet ready for them with the landlords.
As we've said already, as soon as we have the information we will post it on here.

Post in this Thread ONLY if you are still available and the instrument or position you normally play in your own band.

ie: Joe Bloggs - 2nd Cornet.

hey we can't let too many Joe Blogg's take the 2nd Cornet Seats... that is my position :lol:
Well if I have permission to miss my own bands rehearsal :wink: then I'm available for the following:

Kari Anson 1st Horn - Wem Jubilee Band - only able to get to Birmingham for 4pm (if that's any use).

Edit: Permission Granted (RT)

Paul Lynch - 1st/2nd Trombone
2nd Section

Even if I can't get the day off work I'll only be at work till 12, and then I can fling myself down the M6 to be there for about 2. Might even be able to bunk off even earlier to get there for 1. And if I catch my boss in a charitable mood I may be able to get the day off without it going toward my holidays by pulling my hours around during the week....

I would ask for a days unpaid leave if I thought it was going to go ahead and make a weekend of it.
PS Will play any horn part :wink:
