    The annual Skelmanthorpe Band Slow Melody competition is set to take place once again on Saturday 10th November, at Pilling Lane Methodist Church, Skelmanthorpe, with the competition starting at 10:00am. In recent years, the competition has welcomed over 60 entries each year, drawing interest from the North East down to London.

    This year, we are delighted to have secured the services of Cornet virtuoso Richard Marshall as adjudicator for the competition, who will judge all of the 8 sections. The sections are as follows:

    11 Years and Under
    14 years and Under
    16 Years and Under
    Veterans (40+)
    Junior ensemble (18 and under)
    Open Ensemble
    and of course our brainchild, the ever popular 'Random' section, where competitiors draw an instrument from a bag, and play a verse of their chosen National Anthem from a provided list (excl. England). Often copied, never bettered!

    As always, the equally popular hot food and refreshments will be available from 9:30am, with warm up facilities located across the road.

    For an entry form for yourself, or your band, contact Graham Bates at: or myself at: If you wish for a posted entry form, please email Graham with your address. We can provide scanned entry forms if it is easier.

    We hope you can support this event, and we look forward to seeing you there!
