    Hi folks,

    Anyone know of any forthcoming Quartet Contests in the Leicester/Midlands/Warwickshire area at all?

    Leicestershire Brass Band association have a contest this coming sunday. The closing date has passed, but there is usally a shortage in the quartet section, so you MAY be able to appeal to their better nature and squeeze in.
    PM me if interested, I'll try and find a phone number.

    NEMBBA Solo Duet & Quartet Contest- Shirland Miners Welfare, 123 Main Road, Shirland, Alfreton, Derbyshire, DE55 6BA. (Member bands only). Classes: Junior Slow melody under 12 years, 12-14 years, 14-17 years, Air Varie, Duet & Quartet Novice (any age). Details from Brian Eggleshaw 01623-478454 (Not sure of the age groups for quartets there, but worth giving Brian a call.

    And don't forget the British Open of course. British Open Solo & Quartet Championships - Tameside. Hyde Town Hall, Market Street, Hyde, SK14 1AL.

    Thanks, I saw the Shirland one but as you say we're a bit late. I've got the forms for the British Open contest but was after something a bit more local first, perhaps.
