January brings with it my favourite Brass Band event of the year – the Butlins Mineworkers contest at Skegness. Butlins welcomes several thousand banders to abuse their facilities for a four day weekend of drinking and banding. It’s ace.

It’s also quite a nice venue. The Skyline Pavilion houses one of the venues and has lots of places to eat and drink. This is a photo of part of the roof, which is made to look a bit like a big tent.

Saturday is contest day for most and the top section play an entertainments selection on the Sunday too, just to make sure that they can’t indulge in the over-priced beer too much.

It’s a great even and I love going
