The West of England Bandsmen's Festival

The West of England Bandsmen's Festival is returning to Cornwall once again this year and it should make for an entertaining day out for anyone enjoying a stay in a local Cornwall holiday home.

The annual event was first held back in 1912 and has been a local tradition in the village of Bugle ever since. Located just outside St Austell, Bugle is the perfect setting for the day of live music, with over 20 bands descending on the picturesque village to compete for the festival’s prestigious awards.

This year's event takes place on June 15th, with the main march kicking off at 10am and the competition starting at 11am. Highlights will include music from the reigning champions, the St Dennis Band, along with performances by the St Austell Town Band and the Roche Brass Band.

More information about the festival can be found on the official West of England Bandsmen's website.
