    Just wondering to be honest, What has happened to Glossop this year?
    Heard they were relegated into the first section (midlands) from this year but they arent on any of the lists of competing bands etc.....
    they are a decent band, so it would be a shame if they arent competing anymore

    Jon Davies is conducting them, and they have "Brassed off" that clashes with their area as far as I know.
  4. Yeah you're right, thats why they're not doing the area, but as far as I know they're playing at the shield.

    Played for Glossop on Sunday night and yes Glossop are appearing in Altrincham all this week performing in "Brassed Off". They are due to be competing at the Tameside Contest in April and are gearing up to play at The Grand Shield.

    However, they are short of a couple of cornet players if anyone out there is interested in joining see their webpages

    does this mean that becuase they havent entered the area they will go down another section? or will they stay in the first section???

    well im pretty sure that after last years area they were demoted down to first section, and im pretty sure that if you opt out of an area then you get dropped a section,
    i am probably talking outta my a**e

    they won't automatically go down - its based on 3 year average points - but they will get a 'last place plus 1' points for not going this year - plus average for the 2 previous they will need a decent result in the following year to stay of luck to them

    don't know the band - but Glossop is a place dear to my heart
