Newtown looks to attract marching entries

The seventh Newtown March & Open Air Contest will be looking to fill the streets of the pretty Mid-Wales town with plenty of great music making.

March
  The organisers are hoping to get as many bands marching through the town as possible on contest day.

Following last year's successful hosting an entry of 11 bands, plans are now well in hand for the seventh Newtown (Mid Wales) March & Open Air Contest to be held on Sunday, 10th June.

Format

The format will be similar to previous years, with a march along the town's High Street into the local park with a prize for deportment.

Bands will then play an own-choice quick march, a hymn tune from the famous 'Red' 120 Hymn Book and one other entertainment piece.

The competition is open to band graded in the First, Second, Third and Fourth Sections, non-registered, youth and training bands. The popular 'massed bands' march item will be repeated again this year!

There is a generous prize pot, together with individual and section awards.
