    I am happy enough with the venue, irrespective of this incident. At least there is plenty of time for arrangements.

    It will make a change the bandsmen and women of Yorkshire visiting Blackpool Contest to hear the standard of playing instead of the other way round.
    For numerous years there has been a treck across the Penines one week before Blackpool to hear how the lower section have managed with the different pieces, now there is no need. Just think how much money could be saved.

    It looks like the Festival of Hair and beauty got the original 15th March spot at Blackpool Winter Gardens. Gardens.htm

    What do other bands do in Blackpool on the Saturday and Saturday night if they stay? Fun Park, Tower?
    I know there are loads of pubs. Any suggestions which are best or any to avoid?

    It's normally, meet up in Yates Wine Lodge, Clifton Square on Saturday afternoon.
    Sunday its The Blue Room just a short distance out of town from the Winter Gardens after playing. Otherwise you have to suffer the Winter Gardens beer in the ship pub, where if you are lucky you might get a drink before it gets knock out of your hand..


    Very costly. It should only be about £3-00 a pint this year. ABV 0.000004%
