Bands from Leeds, Pontefract, Bradford, Lincoln, Rugby, London and Brighton will come together in Leeds over the next few months to raise money for Heart Research UK and to be named as the Battle Of The Bands 2011 Champion.

The competition features a wide variety of genres including pop, dance, dub-step, metal, rock and punk.

Heats are taking place at the Royal Park Cellars in Leeds on 4th April, 11th April, 2nd May, and 16th May. The Grand Final will take place on 30th May,

Each show will open at 8pm and features 4 bands.

The gigs will be £3 entry, and remember to bring your pennies to donate too - every little helps and every penny will be donated to Heart Research UK, who will have a representative from the Charity present at every show.

Please support the bands in raising money for charity.
