    Is anyone playing or going to Hardraw on the 10th Sept, to me it is one of the most natural places to play, the sound that reverberates around the grounds, it must be a hard decision for a ajudicator to pick out the winning band. :clap:

    If the weather is kind and the crowds are in force, there is no better place to hear a Brass Band. Good luck to all who are taking part. :tup

    Well, having depped with Wetherby last week I know that they're going (unless they've changed their minds since!)
  5. Hello,

    Yes, we'll be there... We have managed to get a Solo Cornet lined up (you're safe 2MD), and an extra drummer... It's our second Baritone, Colin Wormald, who organises it, so we kind of have to go... As long as its fine it's a great day out. It'll be mad if it rains with 12 bands and a small beer tent...

    You could have put this post in Adjudicators Comment or Rehearsal room to get more views... Come on 2MD - do your job!!!!

    Harrogate are going too...

    Thank you everyone, never gave it a thought that it would need to go anywhere else but the chat section.

  8. You didn't say who you play for???

    So you're not actually playing there yourself then?

    I used to love playing at Hardraw, it's a superb venue when the weather is favourable.

    Had a really good day at Hardraw today. Weather was beautiful, bright sunshine all day, magnificent scenery and surroundings, couldnt ask for a better setting or day.

    I was lucky enough to be asked to play for Harrogate, which i thoroughly enjoyed, a really good band and a cracking bunch of people, so thanks to everyone from Harrogate. I thought we played very well, so hopefully the band can be pleased with how it played.

    I only really heard Milnrow and Wetherby of the other bands, both played very well, Milnrow sounded especially good.

    A fantastic day out, great contest.:p

    We at the National Methodist Youth Brass Band had a super concert here on our recent tour of the Lake District (And surrounding area) - what a super place to play - very much part of nature. I am sure a contest at the venue would be superb - and not too far to the pub afterwards ;-)
  18. Hello,

    I never saw you CK!

    It was a cracking day, all the better for our good result and the solist prize - four bands played Orange Juice, including ourselves, so Sarah Kearsley was overjoyed that Roy Roe prefered her rendition! Good weather always helps, and there were hundreds of people there to listen - where else does that happen for a contest?

    Unfortunately, as it stands today, there is no sponsorship in place for the event next year. The contest doesn't cost a massive amount to put on, but there are a couple of marquees to hire, as contingency in case it rains. The Green Dragon (the pub which owns the access to the falls) is investing money in the venue, with plans for a roof on the bandstand as it was back in the 1930s, as well as improving terracing for the audience. If anyone can help, please make contact with Colin Wormald, vice president of YHBBA & member of Wetherby Silver Band - you can PM me for details.

    From the beer tent, Milnrow sounded fantastic...

    How did my original band (all of 30 years ago) Barnoldswick, get on and did anyone hear them? 4BR seem to have them placed as "best ungraded" and winning the soloists prize.

    Sadly, most of my memories are of when the contest was held in May and getting soaked by the rain on the bandstand.
