Brigstowe Village Band Summer

Message from Liz:

Dear BVB,

Hope you are all bearing up in the current crisis.

Laurel and the steerers are still planning for late summer and we are planning a virtual rehearsal on Sunday 19 April – details to follow. Laurel is already putting up new sound files to support our practice.

See here for May and June gigs that have been cancelled – all with very nice sentiments expressed and the probability of re-booking.

When we get to a summer gig, and it must come eventually when all is safe, we will be drawing from the Summer Repertoire 2020 list which can be found here.

Best wishes

Liz for the steering group

PS. Steerers have agreed to pay Laurel during the crisis. If possible please continue to pay subs as usual.

April Rehearsal cancelled

Message from Liz:

With regret we are cancelling the rehearsal on Sunday 19 April and the Hobby Horse workshop that was to follow.  We will keep a careful eye on developments and let you know the status of the rehearsal in May asap.

Resumption of business as soon as government guidance permits.

Please keep an eye on the website.

By the way in a spirit of optimism, in the hope we will all be playing together soon, the Summer Playlist will be posted so everyone can practice.

(A note from the Treasurer – subs are due for April to August – details can be found here.)

Keep in touch and anyone who needs help do not hesitate to contact Steerers.

Keep safe
