Just finished finalising the hall etc.

The cost will be £6. I'll have the website complete within the next week or so, then you can send me applications!

It'll be a very relaxed day, playing through some single reed ensemble pieces, with a nice leisurely lunch break, then I'll book and/or find a restaurant to have a meal in after the event. smile.gif

There will be a maximum of 24 spaces, so early applications are advised!

I doubt I'll be able to make it sad.gif

A local organisation is having an autumn ball that evening; even if I don't get roped into the setting up during the day, I'm not sure whether or not I'd be able to get back in time after Barry's single reed day.

Of course, if I can make it, I'll be there clarinet.gif

It'll be done earlier than most forum events (4pm), and isn't far from Central London (venue is in zone 2).

I'll keep my fingers crossed Deborah, it'd be fab to see you there! smile.gif

I'm really hoping to make it since it's virtually on my doorstep. I just need to check when my regular classes start back after the summer break - I've got a feeling it won't be until the following week which would be perfect.
