    That's good to see - pity there's no French band in the contest this time, though :(

    The French champion (brass band Aeolus) do not participate to the contest this year due to the cost of the trip. :(

    There is no sponsoring for brass bands in France.

    Well done to the english contingent on getting in, and especially Jonny Shaw, who is my Bb bass partner at Faireys, do us proud!

    By the way does anyone know when the EYBB is taking place?

    Not completely sure if I'm right but is it April 27th - May 4th?
    You would have to double check.

    Is anyone having trouble finding funding to go?

    And before you ask, no I'm not offering money.

    It would appear the English representatives are being funded, congrats!

    Not sure about Scotland and Ireland, but I know theres no money for the Welsh.

    It is may personal opinion that the title 'Youth' is often associated with 'children', and suggests -not very good-to those outside the banding world. I know this is quite untrue and many of the participants this year play for championship section bands and compete on the international stage, but untill we advise those with such a perception there will never be any significant sponsorship.
