Its on 16th November at the Theatre Royal, St. Helens. Test pieces in all sections own choice from anything composed or arranged by Eric Ball.

Details were posted on 4barsrest a couple of months ago.

I think it's usually the same date as Spennymoor (16th of November). It's usually set works, but this year they're doing own choice Eric Ball pieces. I think Rainford band run the contest usually, so it is probably them you have to get in touch with. Hmmm... that was rather unhelpful of me really. No real info! :?
 
Anyone on here competing at this contest?

We are but I'm not sure what we are playing yet.

What are you going to play :?:

Will cya in the bar NT, like leisa said she will be a bit drunk... has a reputation for that (not like me :twisted: ) Am not sure why don't like tournament for brass... think it is because it is always quiet.... pp, mp etc where's the fff and the exciting stuff??? :D
 
If anyone would like any information about Wilks, then just send me a PM 'cause it's my band that organise it :?

I'll be drunken steward on the door nobody goes in... :cry:

Anyway, they've knocked the front of the Theatre Royal down so....i don't know if it will still be there in November :? :? It probably will be but no doubt you'l be contacted if it's not!!

At the moment we have a choice of two.
Our MD says we can vote on in on Friday and then he'll tell us which one we're playing :?
very democratic!
 
We are undecided, might be Journey Into Freedom or A Kensington Concerto, think we have some more stuff to look at as well , then roll a dice.

Do you think it is wise to post the test pieces you are playing in an own choice contest? Who knows if the adjudicator is reading this!!!
