More news from SWBBA
The South West Brass Band Association have announced the details for the popular and friendly annual own choice contest held at the Winter Gardens, Weston Super Mare on Sunday 18th May 2014.
From 2012 the event became a South West Brass Band Association (SWBBA) promotion. Contest Administration continues to be handled by John Woods.
The existing format will remain, with Parkwood Community Leisure and North Somerset Council supporting the event in the Winter Gardens which provide excellent facilities for the bands, audiences and supporters alike - with the added opportunity of a day beside the sea and Weston’s rejuvenated sea front.
Parkwood Leisures Manager, Ian Woodward, commented “This is an important event for us, and the resort, enabling us to showcase our auditorium, restaurant and bar facilities to band members and their supporters and families”.
With Weston Brass members continuing to supply stewarding on the day, bands are assured of a warm welcome to the contest which attracts entries from across the South West, Wales, Midlands, Home Counties and South East.
John Woods told Empty Chairs: “I’m delighted to be taking this contest forward in its 46th year. We had a great entry last year and very positive feedback from many bands about the organization and atmosphere created. With support from the SWBBA management team I’m confident we can maintain this popular event in the Brass Band calendar. “
Adjudicators for 2014 will be Paul Cosh and Stan Lippeatt. The Contest schedule and entry form will be available from John Woods in late December at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01934 750700.
Bands that have competed at Weston in the past, as well as member bands of SWBBA, can expect to hear from John by the year end. Full details of the Contest will also be posted and available to download at www.
