    Just like to say a big well done to all at Ireland Colliery for this contest. It is so well run, I think the format of the adjudication is great and the atmosphere is always really good.

    It is a credit to your band!!

    Many Thanks

    What this? how does a band representative award work? Is this like the "I heard a lot of people in the audience/bar afterwards saying we should have won" type opinion?

    Each band has a rep making up a band reps judging panel who sit and listen to all the bands.

    Another cracking day out, well done IJK and Ireland band.

    That's an interesting idea.

    I wonder how that would work at the Open - could it possibly lead to political voting a la Eurovision Song Contest?

    Big well done to my friends from Deepcar as well!!!
  10. Love you, Stannington Brass Band!!
