    Hopkins Solicitors Blidworth will be there, we all should support our association and also get some ideas as to where or if we are going wrong in preparation for the area.

    I have just a look around some websites it appears that Silk Brass and Strata Brass are going in the second section. Also a possibility that Ireland Colliery will be there in the 4th.

    I cant see us going as we have not gone for the last 3 years, as in the past it as never done us any good when we have gone to the area contest we have always played worse at the area.

    Might go to listen. Definately not playing though cos it's going to take more than a couple of weeks to get Tam O'Shanter up to scratch after Butlins!

    Does anybody have any information as to what time it starts and do the sections overlap?

    Many thanks

    Just found out the bands that have entered the 4th section: Bestwood Black Diamonds, Dearne Valley, Dronfield, Ireland Colliery, Matlock, Tideswell and Trentham Brass.

    It's starting later than usual this year. I believe that the first 4th section band will be going on stage at 11am.

    From there, it goes through the sections in one hall (although the sections are short compared to bigger contests) and the results are all announced at the end.

    Hope that helps
