Newtown looking for open air attractions

The entry list is now open for bands wishing to visit the Newtown March & Open Air contest in mid -Wales later this year.

mARCHING
  The march contest has become a popular event in the mid-Wales town

Following last year's successful event, plans are now well underway for the eighth Newtown (Mid Wales) March & Open Air Contest to be held on Sunday, 9th June.

March

To be held at Newtown Hall Park, the format is similar to previous years, with a march along the local High Street into the park with a prize for deportment. Bands will then play an own choice quick march, a hymn tune from the famous 'Red Hymn Book' and one other entertainment piece.

Open

The competition is open to bands graded in the First to Fourth Sections as well as non-registered and youth and training bands.

Support us for less than a cup of coffee...

4BR wants to ensure that the brass band movement remains vibrant and relevant. We also want to be able to question, challenge and critically examine those who run and play in it, producing high quality journalism that informs as well as entertains our readers.

So if like us you value a strong, independent perspective on the brass band world - then why not consider becoming a supporter and help make our future and that of a burgeoning brass band movement more secure.

So one less cappuccino then?
