    Cancelled - Kiveton Community Woodland Brass Festival 2012.

    With regret the Forestry Commission, England have been in contact to inform that the financial support they were dependant upon to ensure this event was viable has not been forthcoming and as a consequence they have taken the decision that the festival will not go ahead for this year.

    This is very disappointing for all concerned but unfortunately I feel this is a consequence of the financial constraints everyone is experiencing at the moment. We have to remain hopeful that things will improve and that the event can take place in 2013.

    Sincere thanks to all bands for their interest in the event and apologies for any inconvenience this cancellation may cause.

    Peggy Tomlinson.
    Contest Administrator.

    Peggy that is a real shame. As I was talking to Gavin somerset yesterday and said we were looking at entering but were just checking holidays etc.

    Hope it is back next year and for all those bands interested in an entertainment contest around June/ July . We are still accepting entries for the 6th battle of the bands contest on the 17th June in Staveley Chesterfield 15 mins from Kiveton. Open to 3rd/4th unreg bands for more details get in touch with great prize money.
