BANDS across the county have been submitting their entries for the County Gazette Battle of the Bands competition.

We are offering acts the chance to perform at the County Gazette's Somerset Show 2019, which runs at Taunton Racecourse on Sunday, July 14.

From punk to pop, country to classical, we are keen to hear from Somerset performers who could take a spot on the bill on the event's main stage.

Bands have until midnight on Friday, March 8, to submit their application and your County Gazette will reveal a shortlist of finalists for readers to vote on - with the most popular taking their place on the bill.
