    Has anyone any idea if the Buxton Entertainment Contest is being held this year, if so when will it be held, and will it be in the Pavillion Gardens. there were rumours going around that last years contest might have been the last one, has anyone any information on the subject. It's a pity if it has folded as it was always a good day out, in a lovely place in Derbyshire and a good pint at a reasonable price in The Old Clubhouse adjacent to the Opera House.

    I think this contest took place on 6th May. There was a link on here and I would love to do one of those clever thingies where it sends you direct to said link but I haven't worked out how to do that yet!

    I thaught the Entertainment Contest took place some time in the Autumn ?
    Perhaps the earlier posts were talking about the Own Choice Contest that takes place in May .

    The Contest did take place in September and was due to be 16th Sept this year however, it is SADLY NO MORE...... due to increased costs for the hall a drop in attendance of both bands and supporters. This was not helped last year by a low entry that then dropped futher on the day with 2 bands withdrawing so entry was down to 6 :mad: . The sponser ( North West Co-Op) has decided to put its funding into other areas some of which is still banding:tup .

    Yes it was a good contest in a nice venue.
    Pity it always seem to fall around the Finals or Wychavon weekend.
