Where is the best place to advertise for new players ?

We have tried The Bandsmen, 4BarsRest and tMP with equal (i.e. no) success.

HAs anyone had any luck with new players ?

Specifically front row conet and tenor trombone if your interested ? :D

Being as you seem to be 2nd section maybe you should try advertising around universities with good music departments? Students who play brass instruments may well be looking for a quality brass band to join, especially 1st years.

Good luck! ;)

In fact they're 1st section (promoted last year).

That was the thought I had, but, trying to think of universities near to Brackley, I don't think there's one nearer than Oxford/Oxford Brookes, which looks to be about 30 miles away by road on the map, which is some way for poor and mostly carless students to travel - I presume, based on the south of the county, that there's no frequent enough public transport out that way?

Having said that, I've got a suspicion that there is (or at least was 3 or 4 years ago) somebody organising what was basically a player brokering system for new students arriving in Oxford; I know Wantage picked up a cornet player that way. I'll ask our resident academic.
