    This would be 'Celebration Brass' at Rufford Abbey, Rufford Country Park, Notts (map) on Sunday 16th July.

    It is open to bands in 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th Sections.

    Each band will perform a 25 minute concert including a solo item.

    No because of the fact no one ever entered the contest that one has been discontinued. Shame really very nice venue but the entry was always very poor.
