The Welsh contesting season opens in Porthcawl with bands looking to get their hands on the magnificent CISWO Challenge Cup and £1,000 first prize.


The domestic Welsh contest season opens in Porthcawl today (February 21st), with a tasty cross-border battle at the town’s Grand Theatre, as a dozen well matched bands battle for the Welsh Open Entertainment title.

Dozen challengers

Nine home bands are joined by a trio of English challengers keen to see if they can lay their hands on the magnificent CISWO Challenge Trophy and £1,000 first prize, courtesy of adjudicator Simone Rebello.
Champions

Reigning champion Tongwynlais Temperance will look to retain its title, although they will be faced with contenders from as far afield as debutants Goodwick in West Wales to Staines and Sandhurst near London in their bid to make it two wins in a row.

AW Parker (Drybrook) takes their place in the contest thanks to their outstanding victory at the Miners Entertainment Contest last September.

If you want to enjoy a day at the seaside with plenty of great brass band music making (as above) to whet the appetite for fish and chips on the way home, then get along.

AW Parker (Drybrook)
Abergavenny Borough
Burry Port Town
City of Cardiff (Melingriffith)
Goodwick Brass
Llwydcoed
