Ev-entz provide large percussion instruments for our full band contests.

Competing bands will be provided with free Competitors’ tickets for their players and MD. These can be collected at any time on contest day and are valid for all sections.
Supporters’ tickets may be purchased in advance for £4 (see entry form) or at the Box Office on the day (£7.50 / Concessions £4.00 / Children under 10 yrs free)

Secretaries are reminded that all bands must use a Nationally accredited registry.  Bands and players that are not nationally registered may only compete in the Ungraded section.

All players in bands graded 4th, 3rd, 2nd, 1st or Championship section must be registered with the appropriate registry at least 9 days prior to the date of the contest.

The rules for Day Transfer of Players have been updated in July 2019 to make it easier for bands in all sections to compete.

Our rules previously allowed allowed Championship Section bands to borrow up to 4 players; First Section bands to borrow up to 4 players including up to 2 from one section higher; Second, Third and Fourth Section bands to borrow up to 6 players including up to 2 from one section higher; and Ungraded bands to borrow up to 6 players registered with 2nd. 3rd & 4th section bands.

scaba has now introduced a points section, allowing ALL bands to borrow players from any section.
The details of this new system are outlined in Rule 9 (9.1 – 9.9) of the scaba Contesting & Registration rules, which can be downloaded from this website.
