    Sorry Di but you have a couple of wrong dates on there. Section 2 is on Sunday at 10am. I believe section 4 is on the Saturday but I'm not so sure on that one

    Ah thanks Michelle, I didn't spot that those had been switched since the original announcement. I'll get the above edited and make sure the prediction dates are changed (will have to wait for hubby to wake up for that though ) too otherwise we'll have a lot of correct entries for the second section.

    Just a reminder to all Championship, First and Second section bands that the clocks go forward on Saturday night. Don't want any mishaps with people turning up late for coaches on such an important day

    I'm absolutely gutted that i'm going to miss this competition for the first time since I started playing...tameside contest is on the same day .

    Really good new area website, and really good to see information being released this far in advance!!

    Best of luck to everyone, especially Ellington.

    The Yorkshire Area programme has the next 3 dates for their regionals in - wouldn't it be nice to see the same in our area instead of the usual Dolphin Centre bingo of recent years?

    A move away from the Dolphin Centre would be even better! I can't believe our area is still so far off. Meh!!

    Good luck to Swinton and District in the 4th section.

    They've had some tough times with player shortages, lack of a permanent MD - so it'll be interesting to see the results this year.

    Ah memories of the Dolphin Centre - an appalling venue for such an important contest.

    Here here, although rather than complain I wonder if we could think of somewhere else that could be put to Alan Hope's committee as a constructive idea?

    The only places that comes to mind is the smaller hall at the Sage, or City Hall in Newcastle.

    With the paltry audiences at the DC in recent years, it'd lose them too much money to hold it at the Sage.

    How about the Barbican Centre in York?

    Wherever it is, it's always going to be a trek for Cumbrian bands.

    Perhaps we should build a New Town half way across the A66 and build a concert hall there

    On a serious note - somewhere on the A1 corridor is sensible so York/Darlington/Durham/Newcastle.

    I honestly think York Barbican Centre is worth looking at.

    This is more like it - finally some ideas for a new venue - Correct about the Sage though - I'd love to play there but it would be way too expensive. I like the York idea also - Harrogate also more centrally accessible for the Cumbrian bands. There's not a lot else in between before you're dipping into the Yorkshire area at Wetherby!!!

    You could all come to Hull - that's not at all out of the way

    Gala Theatre, Durham maybe?

    May be some support funding from the County Council as well? I know they have a pot for individual bands within the County, so bands are reasonably high on their agenda.
