    Hardraw Scar Festival on T.V.
    The popular Hardraw Scar Brass Festival organised by Yorkshire and Humberside Brass Band Association is to feature in yet another television programme.
    For the past three years the festival has been featured in various T.V. programmes and the 2011 contest is no exception.

    Hardraw Scar 2011 was filmed for the B.B.C. to be included in a new series of programmes about the British countryside commencing on 16[SUP]th[/SUP] February. The contest will be included in the ‘Yorkshire’ programme of “The Great British Countryside” to be transmitted on B.B.C.1 on Thursday, 23[SUP]rd[/SUP] February at 8.00p.m.

    A spokesperson for the association commented “It is most encouraging that Hardraw Scar contest has had a resurgence of interest in the past fews years with more bands entering and greater audience numbers. The venue presents brass bands and the beautiful Yorkshire countryside at its best and being featured on television has brought this typical county contest to a much wider audience. We understand items from Harrogate, Wetherby Silver and Otley bands will be featured on the show.”
