On the EASB site the English Amateur Championship is described as
The most important event in the EASB calendar and the oldest amateur snooker competition in the World. Its roll of honour reads like a who’s who of snooker nobility. The winner will represent England in the World Amateur Championships, European Championships and Home Internationals Seniors Team. The runner up will automatically be selected for the European Snooker Championship and will be first in line should the winner not take his place in the World Amateur Championship, or if further places are made available to England.
Recently, the Southern section of the English Amateur Championship was played at the South West Snooker Academy in Gloucester.
