    No, because up until last year, it was traditionally at the end of April.

    A bit dis organised.. turned up in 2002, and Holmfirth civic hall was locked up, we had to bang on the door to get in. I went on the stage to collect the Jim Battye cup for best bass section at the awards, and the trophy had not been returned from the previous year, the organisers had no idea where it was, The contest could be at any time from April 27 th to june.

    I heard they were planning for late April. Because that meant Alan at Pogson Bray Trust aimed for 6th April to avoid any clashes!

    I hope they have now found the Battye cup. You must have been devastated! Not many of us have won the Battye title have they.
