The committee meet every few months at a committee member's house, usually on a Monday or Thursday evening.
Meetings include plenty of tea and biscuits whilst discussing concert dates / arrangements, fundraising ideas and general running of the band. Committee members help with odd jobs as well as assisting with the running of concerts.
The committee is always open to new members so do chat to us if you are interested in getting more involved.
