    Hi murray.

    You stick to the floor and play in a hall with a low(ish) ceiling. You get a heap of glass trophies, lots of soloist awards and play some music. There was a communal dressing room last year, and a quirky little warm up room.

    If the weather is anything like it was last year. PREPARE TO PERSPIRATE! and stay off the coach.

    There's fish and chips and a bar there too.

    (BTW, good luck sellers, retain that trophy from last year!)

    ... and as it's a youth contest, you get served at the bar a sight quicker than at the Spring Festival.

    ... but now it's cancelled, I guess you'll have to settle for the Holmfirth Contest which I believe is on the same day.

    I'm on my annual pilgrimage to Amboise that weekend so afraid I'll miss it this year - nice contest though - very freindly atmosphere - and if you win a few of their trophies and melt them down you'll go to the top of the 4br money list no worries.

    Well this sort of answers a question i was going to ask - as Pontins has been cancelled, are there any other Youth contests/festivals in June or July that i could enter my band into (preferably that allow adults to play aswell!!)

    Could anyone provide details or contact names for the Holmfirth Contest?

    Holmfirth Civic Hall
    8th June
    Think its in A,B,C sectons with usual sections in each. (am willing to be corrected)

    There is Silkstone March contest (early July) & Brighouse March Contest (late june).

    Click Here for the link for last years contest details, however i am not sure they are still valid.

    6th July this year.

    Clashes with Shat Sing - any excuses I can use to get out of that so I can go to watch at Briggus?

    (p.s. tea will be ready at 5.30).
