Burry Port Town Band are gearing up for their third West Wales Solo and Ensemble Day on Saturday 25th January in the Memorial Hall, Burry Port starting at around 10am

This is an important event for the band and the town as it offers an opportunity for budding brass players (of all ages!) from South Wales the chance to perform.
There is some excitement about the event already building in bandrooms across South Wales, with Youth Bands from Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire, Swansea and the Valleys regions wanting to attend and already busy practicing their performances.
The band are looking forward to entries in a variety of classes for solos, duets, trios, small and large ensembles and finally full Youth bands.
The organisers have engaged some talented local adjudicators for this event and believe it will be an ideal opportunity for youth bands, players and ensembles the chance to show their talents to a wider audience.
It's not too late to enter!
Entries should be in by January 11th, so please think about coming along, the more the merrier!
If you wanted to take a look at the entry details they are all available on the band's website - on the Music Festival page.
The ethos of the day is to allow budding and developing brass players of all ages the opportunity to demonstrate their talent in front of an appreciative audience, so there are guidelines, no rules, no timing of performances, but leave it to each performer to manage their performance time.
Graham Howe, the Band's Chairman, said: "It was such an enjoyable event last year and the adjudicators really bought into the ethos of the day, where we're looking to give the young brass players a stage and an appreciative audience to perform to."
The town and the band looks forward to welcoming performers, supporters and teachers to the event on Saturday 25th January in the Memorial Hall, Burry Port.
