The Geneva Group is to continue with its support of grassroots banding in the north east of England with the news that they are to sponsor the popular Durham County Brass Band Association 'Picnic in the Park' Entertainment Contest.

Huge boost

The event will be held in the grounds of Houghall College, Durham on Sunday 7th July, with Hugh Stephenson, Vice President of the Association telling 4BR that the support comes as a huge boost.

"We would like to say a big thank you to Tim Oldroyd (CEO) for his quick response to my recent request and for saving the contest. We're absolutely delighted."
