St George's Day Parade- 24th April

Important information
This year we are back in the Spa Pavilion (hurray!).
We will be parading from the Seafront near the Leisure Centre at 2:30pm, back to the Spa to play during their service.
Please can you arrive at the Spa Pavilion by 2:00pm so that we can setup, run through the pieces, and make our way over to the Leisure Centre.
Please note that there will likely be some road closures, and as there is no parking available at the Spa, please aim to arrive in good time.

Instrument Issues

If you have an issue with your instrument, please let your bandleader know. We can fix most things.

Contacting old MB members

We would like to invite as many former Martlesham Brass members to our 20th birthday celebration weekend (24/25 September) as possible. However, we don't have everyone's up to date contact details. If this is anyone you know that is an ex member of the band and you still keep in touch - please let Jayne Howlett know. It would be good to see as many people over the weekend as possible.
