This is one of a popular series of BBE webinars held during the Covid-19 crisis, which seeks to delve into elements of the BBE Development programmes. They have so far been enjoyed by over 45,000 viewers.

Webinar

Paul's session will take place on a Zoom webinar for those who want to get involved and ask questions directly, as well as being available as a Facebook live video on the BBE Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/brassbandsengland

All the workshops are free but BBE is asking participants to consider supporting the Brass Bands Emergency Fund with what they think sessions are worth. The fund will use 100% of donated funds to support bands struggling during the crisis with ongoing freelance costs and other financial commitments

To help, go to: https://www.chuffed.org/project/brassbandemergencyfund

Ask questions

During the session, Zoom attendees will be able to ask questions sent in via the registration form.

The workshop will begin with a short presentation on how to use the Zoom platform effectively to get the most out of the workshop while participants get used to the set up before starting at about 7.10pm.

After the live broadcast you can join many others at the 'BBE Pub' to discuss the session and other things happening in the banding world.

The BBE Development Programme Online has lined up experts from across the brass band world every Thursday for at least the next few months to lead webinars straight to your living rooms on subjects covering almost every conceivable element of banding.
