NINE bands have entered their First Entertainment Contest following the cancellation of last year’s annual test piece contest due to lack of entries.
Organisers the Pogson Bray Trust committee are pleased with the response to this weekend’s event following last year’s disappointment.
The new format will see the bands compete in a 20 minute concert programme which must include a march.
The competing bands are (in alphabetical order) Clifton & Lightcliffe, Clifton & Lightcliffe B, Elland Silver, Friendly (Sowerby Bridge), Huddersfield & Ripponden, Lindley, Sellers Youth, Slaithwaite and Thurlstone.
The adjudicator for the contest will be Stuart Fawcett.
The contest takes place tomorrow (Sunday) at Bertie’s Bistro, Elland. The first band will be on stage at 10am. Food and drink will be available all day and admission will be £4 adults and £2 concessions.
