​ Green light for Dr Martin’s Wainstone’s Cup

The organisers of the Dr Martin’s Wainstone’s Cup competition have announced that the contest has been arranged to take place on Sunday 12th September at the Princess Alexander Auditorium, Yarm School in Stockton on Tees. As in previous years the event will take place the day after the British Open Championships in Birmingham, with an attractive prize fund on offer for competitors. This year’s first prize is £4,000 with further podium prizes of £2,000, £1,000 and £500. There is also £250 for the 'Best March', £250 for the 'Best Soloist' in addition to all bands receiving £400 towards travel expenses. 

The format remains the same as previous years: the set march accompanied by an own-choice test-piece and a featured soloist, with bands able to borrow up to 4 players to enable them to compete. In the event that issues related to Covid-19 remain unresolved, all bands will receive a full refund. A final decision to proceed will be made in lieu of the pre-draw on 18th August 2021.
