Skeggy. It’s bracing.

Skegness beckons once more.

It’s that time of year when brass band musicians and enthusiasts head into the fog-shrouded fens of Lincolnshire for the Butlins Mineworkers Open Festival. It’s an event not to be missed in the brass band calender. No, really.

I shall be there, and so will the rest of our band: Carlton Brass. We’re in the First Section again this year and hoping to improve on the creditable 9th place that we achieved last time around. We shall also be imbibing a few intoxicating liquids and having a generally ace time.

Expect some drunk posts on my Twitter feed. If we win, or come in the prizes, expect some very drunk posts.
