Pre-Contest Festival Update 2020

Garry AmbroseNews

We are sorry to confirm that for the first time in more than 60 years, there will be no Pre Contest Festival given by Enfield Citadel Band to herald the start of the National Contest weekend in London this year.

As the contest itself has been cancelled, we confirm we have taken the decision to follow suit, in compliance with current restrictions on live performances. We will miss playing to our regular informed audience.

We are part of the local work of The Salvation Army in Enfield and the wider UK, which we always support with the proceeds of this evening. The work of the Salvation Army has increased in scope and importance with the current Covid-19 pandemic affecting so many.

Should you still wish to support our community activities, we draw your attention to our Just Giving page via the link below. A donation to our page will be used in full to support this work.

Should you wish to purchase any of the few remaining CDs on our website, all proceeds from these sales will also be going to support this work.

We hope we can resume our annual Festival in the future. Thank you for your ongoing support.
