Ian’s Update July 2013

At the time of writing Exploding Brass is about 4 weeks away so we will have a full report next month!  All I can say now is a big thanks to everyone who worked so hard in pulling together this year’s event which in many ways has been the hardest ever since 1995 in balancing a quality production with the tough economic climate we are in at present.

A big thanks to the Taverham Band, many of whom attended 4 hrs of rehearsal per week for 2 months leading up to the concert.

A reminder to get your advance tickets as they will cost more on the gate!!………….
