Booking for SqueezEast Concertina Band Day is now open.
We are pleased to announce that day will be led by Paul Barrett,
who will provide all the musical arrangements.
We ask that bookings are made and paid for in advance
to allow us to prepare and duplicate the music.
Payment can be made by bank transfer or cheque,
details will be sent once you make your booking.
This year the cost of hiring the ballroom has increased significantly and the hire terms
have changed. We are therefore having to ask for payment in advance. Should you need
to cancel we will only be able to refund £10. If the event is cancelled we will refund in full.
Details of the event are given below,
but if you have any other queries please do not hesitate to contact us.

We welcome players of English, Anglo and Duet concertina systems. The music will be arranged in parts to accomodate players of Treble, Baritone and Bass concertinas. Players are welcome to bring more than one concertina to the event.
Whilst players of all skill levels are welcome, some music reading will be essential. Most music will be arranged in the keys of C, G and D, but F and Bb may also be used for some pieces. Music is normally presented in Treble Clef, but Bass Clef versions can be provided if required.
Music is not sent out in advance. This not only saves money on postage, but also means that all players learn the music together. We request that the scores provided are returned at the end of the day.
There will be breaks at convenient points when tea and coffee will be served. The cost of these refreshments is included in the price for the day.
Players of Piccolo and Tenor/Treble concertinas are most welcome, however specific parts will not be provided for these instruments, the Treble lines will be suitable.
Barleycorn Concertinas will be bringing a selection of their stock for you to browse (and purchase) during the breaks. Please let Chris Algar know in advance, if you are looking for something in particular.
Players with long distances to travel will find a range of suitable accomodation available in the area.
