    Are we sure all these are correct? From what i heard they messed up the results at the prize giving (giving them to the wrong bands etc?!) :roll:

    Yes they are the correct results. I believe that a mistake was made at the end of the contest regards Section B, but the proper result was given at the end of the section with Meltham in first place in the test piece and Slaithwaite second.
    I also heard Marsden were 2nd in the Section A test piece and won the Section A Hymn Tune.

    Hi All

    I have been asked by Keith if I could post this question for him as he seems to be experiencing difficulties with posting just now...

    'Could anybody tell me the hymns and test pieces the prize winning bands played at the Holmfirth Contest last Sunday'

    When I can find my programme from Sunday I'll give you the info I wrote down!

    Off the top of my head
    Meltham's test piece was Land of the Long White Cloud and Slaithwaite's was 'Variations on Ladaute Donimun'

    Will let you know the rest asap.
