    What date is the open LBBA solo contest next year please as we are looking at coming up from the Forest of Dean Area Youth Brass Band (if you took part last year then you may well have met some of us!). We really enjoyed it last year although i'm not too sure about the slow melodies being unaccompanied - makes the bars rest a little dull!
