    I will be going to listen as i do anyway for the last 10 years at least.
    but i have found its mainly:
    Yorkshire , Lacashire,Derbyshire&Leicestershire bands who go to the contest,.
    But its a great contest and if the weather is nice its a great day as well,.:)
    Plus its a Nice big hall to play in.;)
    Just a pity our band do not go to the contest:(

    I saw it is for four sections....which 4 sections?

    Is it a regional grading?

    Is it CH/1, 2, 3 &4

    Is it Ch, 1, 2 & 3/4?

    or is it something else?

    No, national grading applies.


    You coming up for the day, Pat?

    Toying with the idea,,,the EBBC are the same weekend. While the festvities at the EBBC may included better playing and some other interesting things (ie conductor/ soloist contests)...Buxton is much closer.
