FRANKLY SPEAKING ABOUT a tale of two contests

"My latest episode of Frankly Speaking is a Tale of Two Contests.

With the pandemic dust possibly settling at least for now, I headed off to the Royal Albert Hall for the National Championships, and the Sage Gateshead for Brass in Concert, sure of meeting old friends for the first time in ages, and delighted at the prospect of hearing some live brass playing again. 

But what would it all feel like, would the audiences be back and perhaps more importantly how would the bands be playing after such a long period away from the contest stage, and how will the organisers approach it all?

Join me as I speak frankly, in this new episode of Frankly Speaking and my Tale of Two Contests."
