The nationwide initiative has already been a great success throughout England, with the latest day taking place at The Civic Barnsley (S70 2HZ) on Sunday 29th June (10.00am – 4.00pm).

Popular appeal

The workshop is designed to appeal to anyone interested in taking their banding forward more creatively, particularly those who have interest in artistic direction, conducting, or undertaking new collaborative ventures.

Delegates will explore how to enhance their audience experience and advance their band through the wider context of art.

After lunch (provided in the cost) Philip will look at how to maximise the benefit of rehearsals, with the help of Rockingham Band in attendance, along with the practicalities of maximising profile by use of social media and marketing.

Inspiring day
