Are you going to any contests soon or do you know of any that are coming up...? Please let everyone know about them and post the details here. It doesn't matter where they are, we all love contests, so the more information we have on the where, when etc, the better...

Shame! You've just missed one. There's just recently been the Aylesbury Contest (Herts. i think), I'm not sure if the next one is Hove for the country, but it is definately the next contest for us in SCABA :lol:

Next contest for us will be early February at Preston Guild Hall. Not got the exact date to hand. Sorry.

There are a few up in t'north over the next few weeks. From memory, there is the NWABBA contest in Rochdale at the end of this month, then the Durham League contest in Spennymoor on 2nd Feb and the North West Open a week later.

That's not forgetting Yeovil, and the presence of the Areas looming large on the horizon.

I mentioned this on another thread, but it's Brass at The Guild (Preston NWABBA) on the 9th of February, and Blackpool Qualifiers on the 9th of March.

Newbiggen entertainment contest in Northumberland 19th January. Too soon after Christmas for our band but unfortuanely I am carrying a trombone on stage with a local band. Didn't dare saying playing a trombone in case I get sued. I might get lucky and play alright but I doubt it:lol:
