Once again the course is open to non-participating guests and non-residential participants, with delegates having the option of arranged hotel accommodation or making their own arrangements.

Music chosen this year encompasses the varying standards of the delegates and will include a recent commission from the pen of Paul Lovatt-Cooper entitled 'The Forces Unleashed' written for Market Rasen Band and being premiered by Black Dyke at Lincoln Cathedral in April.
