Thanks Will, always nice to receive praise from fellow composers and arrangers. And for anyone that has spotted the deliberate mistake in that write-up, I believe Pennine have contacted the admin team about getting that changed (as I’m sure the Battle Of Britain was more than 40 years ago :-? )

Thanks, and hope the concert goes well!
With the Whit Marches coming up, I conduct a young(ish) village band and we always do the Whit Marches every year. Every year we also play the same march and so I feel its time for a change. Something i'm not clear on though, is which marches qualify as "Contest" marches to be played in...
