  1. Just wondering which bands will be entering this yrs Fleetwood contest and what section they are in? I know its now run by Lancashire contests and not the nwcbba and is open to a limited number of bands, some i believe are not usually there. We,Thornton Cleveleys Band, are going to be there in the 4th section.

    Can someone confirm the entry fee? I have been told it's £150.00.

    Prize money should be excellent unless someones lining pockets.
