    Top Section should have some interesting listening!

    As far as I know there is at least these:

    Rococco Variations
    Journey to Centre of Earth
    Titan's Progress
    Between the Moon and Mexico
    Diversions on a Bass Theme

    Any one know any more?

    Wow! They are definitely worth a listen :) Good luck to all bands competing, especially those in the top section who are attempting some really difficult works!

    Looks like they have missed Rainford out of the top section, they will also be at the Guild Hall.

    No worries, we all know we haven't done as well as we could on the test piece stage, but hopefully this year we're going to get stuck in to more contests and put that right! But who knows next week? I might have a cheeky punt from the heart! :)

    Can I just mention that at this contest, the trades area is in and around the bar area.

    Please make a point of visiting especially the FANFARE NORTH / CENTRE STAGE UNIFORM STAND.

    I am very pleased to team up with Martin Gernon of Centre Stage Uniforms and hold a joint trade stand.

    Please have a look at the TOP QUALITY Walking out jackets, Stage uniforms, Showerproof fleeces, Stand banners and everything that you could possibly require to make your bands appearance the smartest possible.

    Prices to suit all bands.

    I wouldn't be surprised if we see a couple of Spring Festival choices being used
