Announcing the BEC Summer ot Excess

As the Winter is quickly becoming a distant memory we turn our attention to the Summer ahead. The BEC is pleased to announce the Summer of Excess (courtesy of Chris Jewel).

A whole stack of  'club' weekends through the summer (including the upcoming Forest of Dean trip, Cricket match and the BBQ).  The concept is that we take a sound system and BBQ with us where ever we go and have some proper 'club' weekends away mixed with good Mendip weekends at the Belfry.
