Friezland contest has a family oriented approach. They provide seating for spectators, on-site refreshment, a barbecue and a real ale bar.

In 2014 they featured in BBC's Blue Peter. The presenter was challenged to learn the trombone from scratch and then participate in the contest. The band didn't win.

The contest site has wheel-chair access with a 20yd drop-off point. And there is a disabled toilet on-site.
