We are not even at the end of November yet and I am pleased to report we have completed our first Christmas carolling engagement! Thank you to everyone who came and said “hi” while we performed at Longacres in Bagshot last Thursday.
While it is a little early for carolling (and Christmas in general!) for some, we don’t believe that in the Alexander house at all! In fact, our tree construction has begun already:

Talking of an early Christmas, I must confess in my banding experience this is not an early start. I remember playing with Martlesham Brass when I was younger at Aldeburgh for their Christmas lights switch-on – always the first weekend in November, and once on November 1st! I don’t know if you’ve been to Suffolk’s North Sea cost in early November, but I think “chilly” and “draughty” are both understatements!
Camberley has three more carolling gigs before December 25th – see if you can spot us at The Meadows on 9th December (5-9pm), The Wellington Centre on 10th December (10.30am – 12.30pm) or Hart Shopping Centre on 17th December (10.30am – 12.30pm).
