Bands from the Second to Fourth sections are invited to get involved in the 2021 Borders Entertainment Contest as the event prepares to make its return.

Organised by the Scottish Borders Brass Band Association, the competition is to take place on Saturday, November 6 at the Buccleuch Centre in Langholm.

This year’s event is to be capped at 12 bands so entries will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.

Christine Calvert, contest secretary, explained: “We are also discussing the coronavirus rules for the day and will produce a document to all bands interested on how we will ensure that everyone attending feels safe. We look forward to welcoming bands to Langholm in November.”
