Bugle 2021 Cancelled
The 2021 Bugle Band Contest has had to be cancelled again this year owing to the ongoing pandemic. The following statement has been released by Geraint Richards the WEBF Chairman: "Dear Friends, Sponsors and Supporters of the West of England Bandsmen's Festival, On behalf of the organising committee of the 'Bugle Band Contest' I want to extend my best wishes to you at a time when we would normally be looking forward to meeting up with one another at our annual and much-loved Festival. For the second year in a row we cannot hold the Contest because of the Covid pandemic but we sincerely hope that in 2022 we will return to Molinnis Park, to see one another again and listen to some wonderful band music. On June 19th, perhaps you might find a moment to relive some memories of previous Contests and even contact someone whom you would have normally met up with on the day. The music and the friendship goes hand in hand at Bugle! This comes with my warmest good wishes to all of you and my sincere thanks for your continued support."
