Rehearsals with Tim

Once again this year there will be opportunities to rehearse informally with Tim Carey. It is not necessary to have pieces prepared to performance standard, but the better prepared, the more there is to gain from the experience. Please book in for these on arrival and we will try and accommodate as many people as possible.

Just Flutes

Just Flutes from Croyden will be present throughout the whole weekend with a huge selection of flutes, headjoints, accessories and sheet music.
