    We might have discussed this before. But it seems that Youth band Contests, that requires an entertainment programme is hard to find!

    I am interested in finding more youth contests for our youth band. Have you got any suggestions for various contests? We are based in North Wales so distance is an issue.

    Please let me know.

    Thank you,

    Have you thought of entering the National Festival of Music for Youth? Not a 'contest' in the strictest sense, but a great performing opportunity (Too late to enter this year but may be worth looking at for next year).

    Do they still have the Action Research competition thingy in Blackpool? That was (and hopefully still is!) a brilliant event. Not a massive journey plus plenty of cheap accommodation if you want to make a weekend of it.
  4. Indeed they do. A wonderful event.

    Why not organise one of your own? Maybe the likes of the RWCMD would accomodate and help? Contact Youth Bands to see if they would support another comp, but the Action research comp is definately one to go to, as it's a feast of talent and entertainment. :)
  6. Blackpool is still going strong, a great day with some fantastic bands.
