How do you fancy having Roger Webster in your bandroom for free...

If you make a successful bid tonight to aid a great pair of causes, then you could be welcoming Roger Webster or David Childs, Simone Rebello, Kevin Crockford or David Thornton to your bandroom...

Roger Webster
  How about bidding for Roger Webster tonight...

There is a wonderful opportunity this evening to put in a bid to get yourself a world class star performer to come to your band for free.

It's all in aid of Breast Cancer Now and the Chatsfield Cancer Treatment Suite DRI, and is taking place at tonight's 'Legends in Brass' concert being held at the Askern Miners Welfare in Askern near Doncaster organised by soprano player Mike Kilmartin.

Concert performance

The concert will feature a joint Askern Colliery and Hatfield Band raising funds for the great causes with a little bit of help from stars such as Mike Kilroy, Kevin Holdgate, Mark Walters and Kevin Crockford.

These stars plus David Childs, Simone Rebello, Roger Webster and David Thornton have kindly offered their services for free to be auctioned off either as a guest soloist or to run a workshop for your band — and it won't cost you a penny.

Winning bids

All winning bidders not there at the concert will be contacted by Mike Kilmartin with all details.

There will be live bids on the night so make sure you get yours in for the star of your choice.

Facebook bid

All you have to do is go to the Facebook page and put down your name and your bid...
