This next event has a particular pull as for part of the day participants will have the chance to see Philip rehearsing the world's number 1 ranked band ahead of their concert the same evening.

Alex Parker of BBE told 4BR: "The day should hold appeal to anyone involved in banding, and in particular those who have an input into artistic direction.

Throughout the day, attendees will learn about concert planning, engaging the audience and the practicalities involved in rehearsing a band, as well as how to maximise your artistic reach and capitalise on marketing through social media."
