    Paddy's Yorkshire Area - 2011

    I was really proud of my bands performance (City of Bradford) and very happy to be going to the finals. A great contest and very well organised. The only negative for me was the photo's as you came off stage - as the last band on we could really have done without that!

    National Championships of Great Britain - 2008 - Qualifying Bands - Second Section

    Agree with all of the above, although if bands were allowed in (as in the past) there would be a better atmosphere and sense of occasion. It's all a bit flat. My band (YBS Concert) had a fab weekend but it was not the location or venue that made this. It's a very expensive weekend already, why...
