    I'm looking for a youth band contest next year, an entertainment programme or test piece.

    We are based in North Wales and willing to travel a couple of hours.

    We were succesful at the North Wales Championships in November and eager to compete in other contests next year. I am aware of the National Youth in Manchester and Fletwood in October, but any other contests?

    Would really appreciate your help :D

    The Gloucestershire Brass Band Association Entertainment Contest has a section for Youth, Training and Unregistered bands.

    It will be held on the 3rd of February 2013 at 'The Larruperz Centre' Ross-on-Wye.

    Why restrict yourself to youth band contests? Most contests without a dedicated youth section will have a section that you could compete in.

    Thanks for the above, but most of the players in our band are under 16 years old, I don't want to enter them in a 4th section contest, would prefer a youth contest in order to compete against bands of a similar age.
