The 2013 Gloucestershire Brass Band Association Entertainment Contest will be once again held at ‘The Larruperz Centre’ Ross-on-Wye following the move there last February. The contest will be held on the 3[SUP]rd[/SUP] of February and the adjudicator will be Lieutenant Colonel Graham Jones. The contest will be again in two sections – Section B for Youth, Training & Unregistered Bands and Section A for all Nationally Graded Bands. It is an ‘Open Contest’ therefore the Gloucestershire Brass Band Association will accept entries from bands anywhere in the country and will accept entries from bands registered with the British Brass Band Registry, Brass Band Players Registry, Welsh Registry or Scottish Registry. With the ongoing debate with regard to registries the GBBA are keen to get bands to enter irrespective of which registry they are using come February. The closing date for entries is the 31[SUP]st[/SUP] of December 2012 and entry forms can be downloaded from our website http://www.gbba-online.org.uk/contests.html (please scroll to bottom of the page for forms).
