Our 20th Annual Festival
Hothorpe Hall
LE17 6QX
Friday 18th to Sunday 20th October 2019

Celebrate our 20th Anniversary year in the stunning setting of Hothorpe Hall. This year promises to be a very special occasion.

  • The premier of at least one new work from our forthcoming competition for a new work for wind band.

  • Extra events during the Festival.

  • Outstanding performance facilities.

  • Excellent accommodation.

  • Impressive amenities.

It all adds up to another superb weekend!

“Celebration” is the theme. You could even say“A right royal celebration!” Not only will the music reflect this theme, but our social on the Friday evening will give you the opportunity to join in all the fun, you may even want to dress the part!

We are bringing back four conductors from previous festivals: Kevin Lamb, Don Lloyd, David Marshall & Ian Peaple. All are highly respected conductors and will no doubt provide expert guidance and challenging rehearsals! Our Gala Concert on Saturday will feature one of the leading concert bands in the Midlands.

The festival is usually fully-booked for certain instruments, so get your application in early! Details from: wbasecretary@virginmedia.com
