Holbeach Town Band will open its doors in Back Lane every afternoon for a week for those interested in learning to play a brass instrument.

Sessions will be 2pm to 4pm, from Monday, July 30 to Friday, August 3, there is no charge and the band will provide the instruments.

The free week has been arranged during the school holidays and the band hope that children will be interested. Details have been sent to all local schools.

However, the week is not limited to children and people of all ages are welcome to come along.

If you have ever thought about learning to play a brass instrument, or if you have played in the past and would like to try again, this is the perfect opportunity. The band's experts will be on hand to show you how to play a wide range of brass instruments - cornet, tenor horn, baritone, euphonium, trombone and tuba.

The band will be able to teach you how to play an instrument and how to read music. You can return as often as you like during the week but will get the most benefit from coming every day.

Longer term training is available through the band's starter group and learner group on Saturday mornings and the training band (for improvers) on a Wednesday evening. Private lessons can also be arranged by special arrangement.

The senior band and training band are always pleased to welcome existing players to their rehearsals on Wednesday evenings.
