When I was young, I often played at Benslow Music School in Hitchin. It was the venue for many of my classical outings, rather than the big band gigs in pubs that became more of a feature as I got older. In 2018, I heard that Benslow Music Trust was in need of volunteer stewards for some of its concerts, and it seemed the ideal opportunity for me to give something back to young and developing musicians in Hitchin (and from further afield). Last night was my first shift and it was fun. It was good to be back in the building, especially following the renovations it's had in recent years. I'm looking forward to getting involved more in the coming weeks and months.
