    Has anyone heard or seen the line up for this contest yet?

    Our band know where we are drawn, but have no clue as to how many bands are competing or who we are pitched against.

    Hoping for a good result and also hoping I don't get as drunk as last year!!!

    P.S. Mods maybe this thread should be moved to the adjudicators section?

    Lack of information for the Brass at the Guild

    Confusion rules ok...

    According to Derek, the organiser of this contest, 4barsrest have all the information about this contest, but the posting on 4barsrest states, contact Derek for more info.

    Last year these details were released with a full list of bands at least 3 weeks before.

    Is a list of bands going to be produced anywhere before the day of the contest does anyone know????

    There has been a bumper entry for the forthcoming Brass at the Guild Hall Contest in a couple of weeks time.

    The organisers of the Brass at the Guild Hall Contest report to 4BR that they have received another bumper entry for the contest which is becoming the most popular in the North West. It all takes place on Sunday 4th February.

    Sections 3 & 4 start the day at 9.30am with Section 3 in the Grand Hall and Section 4 in the Charter Theatre.

    In the Grand Hall the Third section with 14 bands is followed by the Championship which has 16 at around 1pm.

    In the Charter Theatre the Fourth Section which has attracted 8 band will be followed by the 5 bands of the Youth Section and concludes with the Second Section's 13 contenders.

    Increased prize fund

    This year sees the prize awards increase by £1000 to a total of £7000, with prizes to the top three bands of £700, £400, £300.

    Once again the Colin & Alan Rowson scholarships will be awarded to the best Cornet & Trombone in the Youth Section.
