Butlins Skegness


Sun 15th Jan 2017

On Friday 13th we all started our journey to the famous seaside resorts of Skegness to compete in the annual Butlins Mineworker's Contest out to try and get our hands on the £2000 top prize.

A tough contest was in order, with 24 bands competing in our section, including some of the strongest Yorkshire and Northwest bands there are. After an early rehearsal we were drawn 15th and played at about 2pm. We delivered a strong performance and came of the stage pleased with what we had done. Unfortunately we weren't to the adjudicators tastes and only came out with 17th place. Room for improvement next year!

The band still had a fantastic time and enjoyed all the other live entertainment and playing from some of the finest Championship Section Bands on the Sunday afternoon.
