Alternative Talents Night - 20th October 7pm

Join your Martlesham brass friends for this great evening of entertainment.
Tickets on sale now £2 per person £1 performers.
There will be a raffle and nibbles.
Please bring your own drink (alcohol permitted).


During 2013, the various bands of Martlesham Brass will be taking part in a wide variety of concerts and events. One of the most exciting will involve Owen Farr, horn soloist with the world famous Cory band.
To help us keep the costs associated with such events down to an absolute minimum, we would be interested in hearing from any individual, company or organisation that might be willing to
sponsor one of our soloists or concerts.
Please talk to one of the bandleaders if you are interested in helping us in this way.
Thank you.

This is a popular event for the whole family. Along with all the usual music there will be cakes for sale and craft stalls. It is hoped that the band could have a music book stall, so if you have unwanted music books to donate please bring them along to raise some money for the band.
