Coffee and Carols Saturday 8th December

Coffee and Carols. - the Intermediate Band is playing at St Michael's Church at 10am on Saturday 8th December. There will be a Christmas Hamper Raffle as well as lots of hot chocolate and mince pies!

Christmas Concert

All bands will be playing at our Christmas Concert on Saturday 22nd of December at St Michael's Church, Martlesham Heath at 7pm. Raffle prizes will be very welcome! Tickets are £3 (primary school children free) available at band practice on Fridays, or by phoning 07802 868924, or by visiting our website or by visiting the 2nd Stop Charity Shop next to Tesco in Kesgrave. This concert is often a sell-out, so get your tickets early this year!!

At the Christmas Concert, we'll be having a best dressed instrument award, so please make your instrument as sparkly as possible, but please do not use sellotape as it can damage the lacquer!

Christmas carolling

This year, 100% of the money raised during carolling will be donated to
our chosen charities - St Elizabeth Hospice, the Ipswich branch of the National Childbirth Trust and 4YP (Suffolk Young People's Health Project).
Carolling tick lists have been given out to all band members - please return them to your bandleader as soon as possible - please remember that we need collectors too (see ticklist), but they must be over 16.
Please note that during our carolling engagements, under 16's should be accompanied by an adult who could either collect or do some shopping (if at a supermarket) as carolling can sometimes finish early.

Practice dates

The last practice before Christmas will be Friday 21st December; first practice of the New Year will be Friday 11th January 2013.

Please remember donations of biscuits are always welcome for break at band practice.
