Welsh Open Entertainment Championship Returns in 2022


The popular Welsh Open Entertainment Championship is to return in 2022. The event will take place on Sunday 20th February at the new venue of the Riverfront Theatre & Arts Centre in Newport. The contest attracts Championship and First Section competitors with the highest placed qualifying band gaining an invitation to compete in the British Open Spring Festival Senior Trophy contest in May. The impressive CISWO Challenge Trophy and first prize of £1,000 is also a tantalising prospect for those bands tempted to enter.

Contest Controller Dean Evans stated, "We are very grateful to Martin and Karyn Mortimer for allowing our contest to continue to be part of the qualification ladder for the British Open Championships. It offers an ideal opportunity for ambitious bands to take the first step to a potential appearance at Symphony Hall in future years."

Entry packs for 2022 Welsh Open Entertainment Championship are available however numbers are restricted for 2022 to the first 12 bands to enter, a reserve list will be in place for bands that enter after that.
