We say a huge thank you to Peggy Tomlinson for all her sterling work in resurrecting this contest after some years of dormancy and making it a popular addition to the banding calendar. She has done an amazing job  - it is now time for her to rest on her laurels and let a new generation take over the hard work! Thank you, Peggy for all you have done over the years to ensure that brass bands continue to flourish in Yorkshire and Humberside.

We are delighted to welcome Adam Whittle as our new Contest Administrator and look forward to supporting him as he takes on this hard but rewarding task.

So now to practicalities. Entry is now open and entry forms and rules for the contest can be downloaded from these links.

See you there!
