    Apparently the adjudicators will be announced at the same time as the pre-draw in mid August.

    I was looking at some of the bands' websites (checking out the competition, lol!) and some of them haven't got the date listed :confused:

    Definitely. I'm afraid I won't be playing the G this time, though. Is "us" Strata Brass, on at 1.30 in the Arts Centre? We're on in the same venue at 7 p.m. Not sure what time we'll be arriving; we've got a TBA rehearsal in Kidlington before we leave.

    Dear all, HELP!!!!
    Foresters will be on stage about 16:30 til 17:00... Our solo horn player has officially left to take up a place at Aberystwyth University but is coming back to play the contest. HOWEVER - I can't work out how to get him back across to the depths of west Wales on the sunday evening. Trains and buses seem to all stop at about lunchtime!

    Is Anyone going that way, either a band bus or a car with a space in it?????? We'd be enormously grateful if anyone can offer him a lift any time in the evening (obviously after we've played!!!)... Please message back or PM me if you can help.... As it stands, I will have rather a long round trip when we come off stage!

    Really hope to hear from someone.................

    Percussion kit

    After not attending this contest for a few years we note that bands are requested to play the Drum kit provided. I realise in it is normal to borrow Timps, Tuned etc. Do all bands use the kit provided? What standard is it?
    Don,t want to upset anyone on Sunday by bringing our own kit, but at the same time don,t want our performance affected by lack of percussion equipment. Your views please.
