    Venue is good to play and listen in and has its own bar (although Wetherspoons also does well). Well organised, too.

    Curtains at back so make sure the basses move forward or you won't hear them

    play from the car park - thats what the adjudicator thinks anyway ;-)

    Thats if the Matlock bass section make it out of the pub for the contest - a feat in itself! ;-)

    Got to disagree (in some ways) about the venue...
    Its decent enough to listen in, but its cramped (especially when it comes to changing space) and the hall is pretty poor to play in as it can be very tricky to hear people around you ('lonely').

    There are far worse out there I'll admit, but I'm not fond of it (because I dislike playing on it) personally.

    Masses of STAIRS if any band has any disabled players, they may well need a bit of help at times!

    (They might even get it...... one can dream!)

    Closes nearer to 5pm but there is a heavily used wetherspoons in walking/staggering distance
     
  15. Thinking of popping down for a listen as I may have no other engagements on...

    this might be really dull of me to ask, but what is the exact date of the contest? can someone PM me with the dates etc
