Thirty-seven bands from across Scotland are getting ready to perform as part of the forthcoming Whitburn Band Virtual Festival.
The event, which will be presented by professional Musical Director Prof Nicholas Childs, will be broadcast free on Whitburn Band's YouTube channel over the weekend of Friday 25th — Sunday 27th June.
Bands will compete in six sections, while hosts Whitburn, Whitburn Heartlands and Whitburn Youth Band will also give a short Gala Concert on the Sunday evening before the announcement of the results.
It all kicks off at 6.00pm on Friday with the Fourth Section and Third Section competitions.
This will be followed on Saturday (6.00pm), when the Second Section and First Section bands perform.
The festival will conclude on Sunday (4.00pm) when you will be able to enjoy the Youth and Percussion Ensembles before the main Championship Section event. This will be followed by the Gala Concert before the announcement of the results.
The Festival is supported by Creative Scotland, Besson, Just Music, Band Supplies and the Scottish Brass Band Association.
Band Chairperson, Charlie Farren told 4BR: "We are all looking forward to our Virtual Festival, which will be a major showcase of talent from across the Scottish banding community and a celebration of music in these tough times.
We hope the audience will enjoy watching and supporting all the bands, and we hope people also enjoy the Gala Concert features from Whitburn, Whitburn Heartlands and Whitburn Youth Bands."
