Last chance to enter Brass at the Wire

If you wish to enter the Brass at the Wire contest you need to be quick...

Parr
  The contest takes place at the Pyramid and Parr Hall in Warrington on Sunday 26th January.

Bands are being reminded that the closing date is today (12.00pm midnight on Thursday 2nd January) for entries for the new Brass at the Wire contest which will take place at Pyramid and Parr Hall in Warrington on Sunday 26th January.

The event continues to enjoy generous support from R. Banks & Son (Funerals Ltd) under proprietor Brian Halliwell and marks a return to the venue that hosted the contest in 1983 and 1984.

Ideal opportunity

The contests also provide the ideal opportunity to test their early season form with competitors able to choose either to perform the 2020 Regional test-pieces or the Butlins Mineworkers Championship set-works.

A new initiative in 2020 will see the Championship and First Section events combined, although separate prizes will be given to the 'Highest Placed' bands in each section. Qualification to the British Open Spring Festival remains the same.

The adjudication team consists of Paul Andrews, Ian Brownbill, Mareika Gray, Sarah Groake -Booth, John Doyle and Sandy Smith.

The contests will start from 9.30am.
