We welcome Brass Bands from across the World to our Outdoor Contest

West of England Bandsmens Festival (more commonly Bugle Band Contest) Outdoor contest has been held in the heart of Cornwall since 1912. Originally held at ‘Peniel’, on the northern fringe of the village, the Festival moved to its current home at Molinnis Park in 1966.

Held on the third Saturday of June each year we have more than 40 trophies steeped in history and our forward thinking committee seek to keep the Festival modern and up to date yet remain careful to respect the traditional values of this unique event.
