* July 2024: MERCH News- T shirts

Sadly we are dangerously low or have run out of 2XL, 3XL & 4XL sizes of our 2024 edition T shirts. Apologies in advance if this affects your order. A backorder system will be set up shortly but for now if you can use the contact form to message us with your name, size, qty, address & email that would really help.   (Backorders will hopefully be delivered approx in the next 3 weeks). 

* July 2024: The Geneva Instruments People's Choice - Online voting

So we are trialling a new & fairer way to vote for your favourite Brass Band on Bandamonium Day. So on 27th July, after you've listened to some amazing music you can scan (or click on) the QR code here and vote for your absolute fave. They will get a special Geneva trophy and recognition for their fantastic performance.

We're hoping Mr W has stopped his new merch ideas but this one slipped in at the last moment- the Bandamonium Bucket Hat! Available from the festival stall/mobile merch car with tracking (yep there will be such a thing!)
