Women 'N' Blues Program
WOMEN 'N' BLUES PROGRAM POSTPONED! Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control, the MBAS regretfully need to postpone this year's MBAS Women'N’Blues July 2022 programme.
As the MBAS and W'N'B mentors have a fairly busy calendar for the remainder of 2022, we have rescheduled Women 'N' Blues for FEBRUARY 2023 – on Sunday 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th.
NOTE: Those who have already registered and paid for the 2022 event have all been contacted directly – and automatically secure a spot for the new February 2023 program dates unless a refund is preferred.
We will make new announcements towards the end of the year when registrations are open again for the new February dates if places are available. Apologies for any inconvenience this unavoidable postponement has caused. Registrants have been emailed contact details for direct enquiries.
