On the 19th March members of both bands worked to move out of our soon to be demolished bandroom in Carlton, to our new home – the old school house in Burton Joyce. The preceding week saw some emotional last rehearsals with several ex-members coming down to say goodbye to the building, which has been the home of the band for over 60 years.
Our new home is lovely. It’s clean, warm, nice and large for all our instruments and (currently) spider free. Resident comedian Phil promised to bring the gigantic spider that lived in the cornet (behind the timps) along to the new building, but so far it has not shown its many-eyed face.
If you would like to find us, this is our address:
Burton Joyce Old School,

Here is our new building:
