So now the areas are nearly over in the Midlands we are keen to promote a new contest to take place in Kirkby in Ashfield this Summer, short road march and then 20 minute entertainment contest. Open to all bands no registration cards required. During the afternoon there will be a Training/junior band contest, bands required to perform a march and also one other piece of music of their own choice. The main contest to take place from about 4pm. Hopefully if the weather permits then the contest will be outside otherwise the Festival Hall has been booked. Entry forms available from Melanie Cooper 07970 490773.
