    Just received a feedback item to brassbandresults, apparently about the NW 1966 4th section area contest, which confuses me on a couple of points... The feedbacker didn't leave an email address, so I thought I'd see if anyone here had any info...

    - It says that it was held in the Glenda Jackson Theatre at Birkenhead Technical College - but this venue wasn't called that until 1983.
    - It says that the test-piece was "On The Pier" - but the only other 4th section areas we have info on from 1966 (Yorkshire and West of England) had different test-pieces ("Northwood Ho" (Sam B. Wood) for Yorkshire, "Everybody's Child" (Eric Ball) for West). Now I know that Yorkshire went through a phase of choosing its own pieces in the 60s, but the conflict with the West of England piece looks odd. "On The Pier" is not recorded yet anywhere in the brassbandresults database.

    Does anyone have any knowledge that could help?
