Lessons learned by a brass band novice

When playing Christmas carols in the high street in near freezing temperatures remember the following ...

  • Wear at least one more layer of clothes than you think will be necessary. Or better still, two.
  • Do not wear fingerless gloves. If you do, put another pair of proper gloves over the top.
  • Two pairs of socks is not enough.
  • Three hours is a very long time.
  • Try not to think about mulled wine, warm mince pies, log fires and restorative tots of brandy. It only makes you feel colder.
