The inaugural Eskdale Festival Band Competition was held in 2015 and adjudicated by Stanley Roocroft. The competition was well represented, attracting entries from Harrogate, Selby and of course Whitby. The standard was high from all the competitors, giving the adjudicator some difficult decisions to make. Above all, the competitors and audience all contributed to what was a celebration of large instrumental ensemble music making.
Every year since, we’ve held the band day as a wonderful celebration of music making in the bigger ensembles.
The 2018 Band Competition will take place on Saturday 3rd March, adjudicated by Stanley Roocroft.
