Final call for Scottish Open and Challenge contests

This is a final call for bands wishing to enter the Scottish Open, supported by BESSON, and Band Supplies Scottish Challenge contests on 27/28 November. The deadline for applications is 30 October. 

Because of the current COVID situation, it has been decided there will be a pre-draw in early November for both events. There will also be some other protocols in place at both contests and all bands will be informed of these before the event.

The Scottish Festival of Brass entry forms are available for bands in the Open (championship) and Challenge (sections 1-4) contests on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 November respectively at the Perth Concert Hall.

Steven Mead and Paul Holland will be adjudicating both the Open and the Challenge events.

Scottish Open entry forms are available here and the Scottish Challenge entry forms can be downloaded here.

The NYBBS Children's band, conducted by musical director Alan Fernie, will be performing in the morning prior to the Scottish Open contest.
