Martlesham Brass
'Making Music Fun in East Anglia'

We had an extremely successful Christmas caroling season despite the 'credit crunch' - thank you to everyone who generously dropped pennies and pounds into our buckets! The grand total was £3418.41 which means we can present cheques for £569.74 to each of the following local charities - The East Anglian Children's Hospice, Kidney Research Ipswich and FIND (Families in Need - Ipswich). The cheques will be presented at our AGM on Friday 6th March starting at 7.30pm at St Michael's Church Centre, Martlesham Heath.
Please remember to get your tickets NOW for our concert with Brett Baker (Principal Trombone with The Black Dyke Band), on Saturday 28th February, starting at 7pm at St Michael's Church Centre. Tickets are £3.50 available from Chris Beale 07802 868924. Brett is an amazingly talented musician to listen to and we are also really looking forward to learning as much as we can at the workshop he is running for us during the day.
Our band welcomes new players young and old, with or without experience. Our aim is to encourage anyone who feels they would like to play in a brass band to come and have a go! If you would like to join us, or if you already play or have previously played a brass instrument and feel that you would like to come along and meet us, please contact us via the website or use the contact details below.
