I am pleased to announce a new competition to add to the brass band contest calendar The competition is The Morley March & Hymn Tune Contest and is to take place on Sunday 8th July 2007 in the lovely town of Morley, West Yorkshire commencing at 2.00 p.m. The format of this event is based on similar contests that are to be held at Brighouse (1st July) & Old Silkstone (14th July) Each band will perform a short march along the pedestrianised Queen Street towards the town hall, followed by a contest march and hymn tune to be played in the band arena outside the town hall. All proceeds from this event are for Lions Charities. The contest is supported by Morley Lions and the Morley Entertainments Committee plus other sponsors and is open to all bands from Championship down to Youth. If you would like to participate in what should be a great day we invite entries now to the contest secretary Mr Fowler. We still have capacity to take more bands. There is a prize fund in excess of £1500 which includes a first prize of £500.
