    I switched on my laptop yesterday looking forward to following the Welsh Open live on 4BR as has been my custom over the past couple of years. Imagine my disappointment when I find there is no live streaming. Now imagine my disappointment when I find there are not even live comments. Now imagine my disappointment on waking this morning to find there are not even a set of results published! It's as if the Open didn't take place.Why has 4BR dropped the event? Surely it can't simply be due to Tredegar's failure to support the competition?

    Me too. Very disappointing coverage. Tongwynlais won, tylorstown 2nd, City of Cardiff 3rd, llwydcoed, parc and dare, Abergavenny, pontradulais and BTM

    best soloist, Euph from ton
    best cornet from city of cardiff
    youngest player from parc
    bursary award to young lad from Tongwynlais.

    Thanks for that. It's too early to get on the phone so I had no idea of the results.

    I had no idea that the Welsh Open had ever been streamed live by 4br????

    The unibrass contest normally falls on the same day + that has been live streamed by the organisers for the past couple of years. (Individual band performances have recently been uploaded to YouTube if you still fancy watching an entertainment contest online)

    Are you sure you're not confusing the Welsh Open with the summer Eisteddfod on S4C?

    Thread bookmarked to link to whenever somebody complains that 4BR has a Welsh bias

    Ydw. Perffaith siwr os gwelwch yn dda.

    Welsh bias in a field of only Welsh bands? Surely (if anything) this thread is the opposite.
