he contest boasts a hefty prize fund with the winners heading home with a first prize of £4,000, and with further podium prizes of £2,000, £1,000 and £500.

There is also £250 for the 'Best March' — which this year should be a composition from the pen of composer George Allan, as well as an additional £250 for the 'Best Soloist'.

All bands will receive £400 towards travel expenses and may borrow up to 4 players to enable them to attend the event.

Opportunity

A spokesperson told 4BR: "The trustees are looking forward to welcoming bands to Yarm School on 12th September. Sadly a band has had to withdraw, but this presents an opportunity for another to step in."
