    I love the Wansbeck. Pity more bands don't make the effort to go.

    Murton are going.

    The Wansbeck used to be an entertainment contest but this is part of the Wansbeck Music festival. I don't think it's actually the same contest. We haven't been asked for the trophies we won at the last Wansbeck Entertainment contest anyway.

    When does it start? I might come up for a listen. Is it test piece or entertainment? Where is it being held?

    Us lower section-ers rise at 10 AM. FRB are the only entrant in the 3rd section AFAIK.

    Contest is 5 sections, own-choice test piece.

    On the Saturday there is a solos/duet/junior competition too at the Sports Hall - have a look at http://www.fiveriversbrass.org.uk/news.htm (Scroll down a bit) to see the timetable.

    Felling will be there but the last I heard was that Ellington had withdrawn. Looks like we will be the only band in the 1st Section

    See you on the day Eric!

    Just to let you know today's solo/duet/ensemble contest has just finished - a very successful contest with some promising youngsters (and not so young!) I'm sure someone official will post the results at a later date.

    Congratulations to all the winners especially the Ashington band who I personally think were in the wrong section.
    Credit must go to the players and Nige for the hard they put in which was apparent.
    Also thanks to the Felling band for letting me dep with them
    This band is going places great set of people and a very talented man in the middle in the guise of Graeme.
    This is a band to watch..
    Thanks again Guys and hoepfully see you all soon

    I know that the Under 13 Solos was won by a young trombonist in my tutor group and a very talented young lady came second (woo!!) but that's all....
