The South Wales Miners Welfare Trust Fund has agreed to sponsor a 20 minute entertainment contest for bands in sections 2, 3, & 4, national grading, from a Welsh Coal Mining Community. Evidence in support of eligibility to qualify for this contest may be sought by the Sponsor, whose decision in this regard is final. Applications are invited from eligible bands in Wales. The contest will be held at the Grand Pavilion, Porthcawl on Saturday September 17th, 2011 with a £600 1st Prize, as well as prizes for the highest unplaced third and fourth sections bands, most entertaining band, and best soloist. It is hoped this new contest will present an exciting opportunity for lower section bands to have their day in the spotlight, at an excellent venue. Schedules can be obtained from Rob Gowing by e mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
