    Was adding some of these to BrassBandResults yesterday - found online results for 2007-10 and 2012, which had a new format. 2011 was cancelled, as was 2013 - due to low entry apparently. Can't find any references online to either a 2014 event or another cancellation. Is this festival still intended to be run or has it been dropped?

    Apparently this had run for many years (2010 being the 39th festival) - does anyone have results dating from before 2007?

    Should add - as it is held in January, I imagine any potential 2014 event has been already if it was held or intended to be held.
  3. I imagine its due to the budget cuts that Gwent experienced (correct me if I'm wrong, not sure), so much has had to have been dropped since. Its a pity, always enjoyed playing at that event!
