The organisers of the 2018 Butlins Mineworkers National Championship, to be held at the Skyline Resort in Skegness on the weekend of 12-15 January, have informed BB that places are still available for bands wishing to enter the Championship, 2nd, 3rd and 4th sections. Anyone wishing to take these up should contact Contest Controller Brian Eggleshaw at brian.eggleshaw@gmail.com without delay. Entry packs for the Butlins Youth and Unregistered sections have been sent out to the bands currently on their database.

Festival Director Steve Walker told BB: “A limited number of spaces are still available but we would urge those bands thinking about coming to Skegness in January to contact us immediately.”
