Just to let everyone know that the preliminary plans are now in place for a new contest to be held in Nottinghamshire next summer.

The planned date is afternoon of Saturday 12th June in Kirkby in Ashfield Town Centre. It will be open to all bands including an additional section for Junior/Training Bands.

The format of the contest will be a little different in that it bands will be judged on deportment for a short march and will then arrive at the contest arena to play a further march, hymn tune and further 10 minutes on stage to play exactly what they want (other than a test piece). Prizes will be awards for all sections. Registration cards will not be required.

An interesting little addition is that the contest is being run on the site of a beer festival

The organisers of the contest are a small group made up from the local Rotary and members of Newstead Band and Kirkby Band.

Entry forms will be going out early next year but at this stage wanted some feedback from bands


Sounds good but a bit too far for us plus too close to Bugle and the summer season, but goodluck anyway! :D


That sounds like an open invitation for a tMP outing to me!!!! The site of a beer festival as well eh :?: :?: Well if you insist :!: :!: :D
