    There's still time to get your entries in for Foden's 2nd solo, duet and quartet competition! With Les Neish and Harmen Vanhoorne adjudicating, 2 performance rooms, 4 accompanists, trade stands (including Boobs & Brass), cash bursaries and other great prizes, refreshments, a concert by the Foden's Youth Band and a keen able team of stewards to point you in the right direction, it promises to be another great day!

    Delighted to say that we've got competitors coming from as far afield as Belgium, so don't delay and get your entries in! No-one else is offering bursaries of £100 - and you don't even have to win a class to win the bursary, just catch the adjudcator's eye and make him pick you as having the most promise! We've got great trophies up for grabs, as well as the chance to have your very own solo written by the talented young composer, Peter Meechan. Can't dangle many more carrots than that folks!
    Email me for an entry form and details: CLOSING DATE 20TH OCTOBER
