Plans Revealed for Butlins 2022
The organisers of the Butlins Brass Band Festival have released details of a spectacular 2022 Festival. Next year’s event will incorporate the Butlins Youth Band Festival and British Open Solo & Quartet Championships as well as the National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain 'Reunion Band' conducted by Dr. Robert Childs for the traditional Gala Concert. "2022 is a special 70th anniversary year for the National Youth Brass Band and we couldn't think of a better way to start the celebrations than to reconnect with past members in the great inclusive family atmosphere of the Butlins Festival.”
The Festival will take place at the flagship Skegness Resort over the weekend 7th-10th January, where as well as the excellent facilities and generous prize money fund, there will also be an emphasis on family entertainment from a wide array of artistes and bands. Defending top section champion Flowers and defending Youth Band winners Youth Brass 2000 will perform on Friday evening followed by Chris Dean's Syd Lawrence Orchestra and Backstage Brass on Saturday. The Skyline Pavilion will also host the Butlins Brass Band Trade Village for the business sector of the brass band movement to also reconnect with its customers face to face for the first time in nearly two years. All five sections will compete on Saturday 8th January with the hugely popular Championship Section entertainment section the day after, hosted by Frank Renton.
A spokesperson for the event explained, "Butlins have also introduced the Coronavirus Guarantee for extra peace of mind, alongside low deposits and the Butlins Lowest Price Guarantee. A three-night break based on a family of four sharing a silver self-catering apartment is just £90.00 per person and includes accommodation, entertainment and parking."
