Only a Few Places Left for Our February Contest

Thank you to all the bands who have already entered our February contest: twenty so far, which is already more than last February. We can accommodate a maximum of a further three bands at our venue (which would make it our biggest NEMBBA contest since I first attended in February 1997). My apologies to those bands who hoped to attend and may miss out: our committee is considering how to accommodate more bands in 2024.

If your band does still wish to enter, please will you wait for confirmation that I am able to accept your entry before paying your entry fee (especially if by BACS), and if you are posting your entry, please email me first ( so that I can reserve a space for you.

Thank you to all the bands who have supported NEMBBA this year, and I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
