Brass Band England members can save a whopping £20 on next year's Area test piece thanks to a cracking new deal with Band Supplies at Cheltenham.

  Get along and check out the BBE trade stand to bag your band a great test piece deal

When the official announcement is made of the 2019 Regional test-pieces in Cheltenham on the weekend, Brass Band England members can be the first to benefit from a great deal thanks to an exclusive offer from Band Supplies.

£20 discount

Brass Band England member bands will receive a £20 discount on any of the five test-pieces – and all they have to do is identify themselves to Chris or Steve on the Band Supplies Trade Stand!!

A quick of the BBE membership list (BBE on hand just a few yards away with their own stand) and the discount will be applied right away on the test piece you will be faced next year!

Added bonus

And as an added bonus, any new band signing up to become BBE members this weekend can receive a special introductory 15% discounted rate from £85 for the next 12 months, and will still be eligible to receive £20 off their 'Area' test-piece.

Band Supplies Managing Director Ronnie Tennant told 4BR: "We're delighted to support the work of Brass Bands England and its growing membership through this initiative.

It's a great weekend at Cheltenham and hope that as many bands and players as possible will visit our stand to get an extra bargain."

The additional support of Band Supplies for our member bands is also greatly appreciated and we hope that as many of them as possible will take up this great offer!CEO, Kenny Crookston

Great offer

In response, BBE Chief Executive Officer Kenneth Crookston added: "This is one of the most important banding weekends of the year and we'll look forward to meeting with as many bands people as possible.

The additional support of Band Supplies for our member bands is also greatly appreciated and we hope that as many of them as possible will take up this great offer!"

Both Band Supplies and BBE will be situated in the foyer area of The Centaur venue at Cheltenham throughout the weekend.
