We are back rehearsing

The band is back playing together once again and what a relief that is. We meet at Martham Parish Church every Thursday at 1915 but do let us know if you plan to come and join us so that we have music available for you.

Covid Update

Sadly, we have been unable to rehearse together since March 2020. We have, however, continued to meet regularly online which has been invaluable to many of us when considering our wellbeing.  Our meetings have been very varied and, hopefully, educational too. Our Musical Director (Linda Purdy BAHons, FTCL, FISM) has covered a range of subjects to improve our listening and music reading skills as well as quizzes and games. We have even had a recital evening giving members the opportunity to perform to one another.

In the Autumn of 2020 a few of us even managed to put together a recording which we felt described us very well!

Those Magnificent Men

During this difficult time, funding has obviously been an issue as planned concerts have had to be cancelled and there has been a lack of opportunity for new bookings.

Looking ahead, we are due to celebrate our thirtieth anniversary this November. We very much hope to be able to all meet again in person and play together for this.  Perhaps even a concert involving past members too ?  Could this include you ?

Band Open Rehearsal 7 November

Do come along to our Open Rehearsal at 7:15pm on 7 November at Hickling Methodist Church NR12 0YD  – any woodwind, brass or percussion  welcome and of any standard.  Join the band for one session and be hooked for life.

If you are still lucky enough to be at school and in Year 11 or below then your parents will need to stay with you.

Do let us know if you plan to come so we can have the right music for you to play.

 

 

It must be spring!

After a winter at Hickling with spring just pushing at the door we are rehearsing in the Barn again.  Check out thew personal heater and flask of Bovril!

Saturday Night at the Movies

Our next concert features music from the silver screen!  It is at Scratby Church Hall on Saturday 27 April at 7:30pm and tickets are £6.00 available on the door. We hope to have a pop corn machine and do feel free to brgin a bottle!
