    This would be 'Celebration Brass' at Rufford Abbey, Rufford Country Park, Notts (map) on Sunday 16th July.

    It is open to bands in 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th Sections.

    Each band will perform a 25 minute concert including a solo item.

    Wychavon Entertainments Contest
    Its a bit of a trek for you but good prize money

    It is being held in Evesham Worcestershire this year and I believe it is the weekend after the finals

    This year it's earlier than normal on Sunday, 17th of September, it has recently fallen the weekend after the lower section finals but this year is the weekend before them.

    No because of the fact no one ever entered the contest that one has been discontinued. Shame really very nice venue but the entry was always very poor.
