Branch Events 2015
This is a two-day event on the weekend of Feb 14th/15th. The tutors will be Eric and Lynn Ward. The venue is the Padgate Community Centre, Warrington. The Saturday session will be aimed at individual players at what every level they require, from the very basic upwards. Sunday will be aimed at the full drum corps. The emphasis will be mainly practical rather than written. There will also be a slot for teaching drummers how to tune drums if this is wanted. The workshop is open to anyone who wants to come. You can attend both days or just one. For drummers outside the branch fees are £20 per person on the Saturday for the individual sessions and £20 per drum corps for the drum corps sessions on Sunday. For drummers within the NW England Branch the workshops are free. That is what you pay your Branch levy for. We would very much appreciate advance noticve of anyone who is intending to attend as this will help us to better organise the days.
