Sunday 25th February - Winter Gardens, Blackpool

There was a record entry of 81 bands for this year's Regional Championships on Sunday 26th February at the Blackpool Winter Gardens.

Full results can be found on the Regional website -


The dates have been agreed with the Winter Gardens, Blackpool and they are

              24th February 2019   -   23rd February 2020

The Regional Committee are aware that these dates fall within school holidays which vary from authority to authority.  They have discussed this and unless another suitable venue can be found then the region has no alternative dates.

To move to another venue would mean going to a two day event and this does not seem popular with the band and would be an additional expense to the Region.   The Committee have tried to move the event back to the last Sunday of March, avoiding any clash with other regional events, but the Winter Gardens is not available on the dates required.   The Committee will continue to monitor this situation and if there is any change then this will be notified to all the bands.

Any comments should be made direct to the Regional Secretary on -  - and not via social media.

The Regional Secretary does not view social media and will not reply to any comments not made direct to him or the Regional Committee.



The Regional Committee has a large number of scores from previous Regional Championships and these are available to any band wishing to borrow one for an Own Choice Contest etc.    The only charge is for postage and packing, and of course the return of the score to the Regional Committee afterwards.    For a full list of scores available please contact the Regional Secretary - Peter Bates - at
