West of England Bandsmen’s Festival
Saturday 15th June 2019

Bugle, Cornwall

Transport back to 1912, a time when the gramophone was in its infancy and the wireless had not been invented. Live performances were the only opportunity of enjoying music and it was against this backdrop that the idea of a band contest was greeted with such enthusiasm. It was estimated that around 6,000 attended that first contest.
