Is there any info about Leicester contest in Nov yet? I know the date and place, but that's about it. Either the association doesn't have a web site or I'm too blonde to find it....

Does anyone out there know how many bands are in each section (Open and 1-4 I think), who they are and who's in the box?

cheers :?

We'll be making the trip for this one, 2nd Section, looking forward to it since we have had a "lean" year for contests and haven't had one since the areas.

Is the rumours about no bar true?, if so wheres the nearest pub :D

Any more news yet?!
I'm sure there was a bar there last time I went, but it was a few years ago.

Ah yes guthlaxton - I remember that place when I played in leicestershire school of music many moons ago!!

They have the facility to have a bar (no pumps though if I remember correctly) whether it is used or not is a different matter!!

By the way seedhouse last time I checked the legal age limit for drinking was 18 :wink: :wink: :lol: and if I remember corectly you were in my year 11 chemistry class last year!!!!

I on the other hand will be drinking :guiness :bounce

We're in Second section, I believe that Regent Brass from London are in the Open section. Other than that, not a clue.

Should be there but not getting drunk :cry: I have a band practice that evening!
