hey ladies gentlemen boys and girls Im in an area where if i was to go about 12-15 miles east of my hometown, Id be in brass band land as theres loads of bands in that area, but in terms of distance roughly, who are the 5 closest bands to where you are. the rule is if you live near a border like i do, then it has to be 5 bands from the regional contest that your home town would be in, so mine would be yorkshire as i live in hebden bridge. CHAMP. - BLACK DYKE 1ST. - HEBDEN BRIDGE 2ND. - SLAITWAITE 3RD. - ELLAND 4TH. - FRIENDLY Im fairly sure this is correct although it would have to be measured for a totally accurate list.
