Adjudicator Change 2014

The Midlands Regional Committee would like to announce that following Jermey Wise’s acceptance to adjudicate the Championship Section at the Midland Regional Contest, Jeremy now realises that he has a conflict of interest and has therefore understandably withdrawn from adjudicating the 2014 Championship Section. David Horsfield (pictured below) has kindly agreed to step in and will adjudicate the Championship Section with Brett Baker.

increase in insurance it has been necessary to add £10 on the entry fee to the Midland Regional Contest – from 2013 the cost for each Band to enter will be £120 (this entry fee will still include 30 Bandsmen’s tickets for access to the stage and both auditoriums). The ticket cost for supporters into both halls will remain the same as last year – £7 adults, £6 concessions and programmes will remain at £2


We know some Bands have been chasing the Entry forms to the Regional Contest, these should be available from Kapitol Promotions in mid November and will be sent out by the Regional Secretary as soon as they are received
