Brass Band Contesting Survey Part 7: Training and Rules, Youth and University Bands and Final Questions

The final part of Brass Bands England's survey into the state of the UK movement has been launched. The survey is designed to find people's views on the current state of brass band contests. Previous parts of the survey can still be completed.

Final questions

Part 7 is entitled, 'Training and Rules, Youth and University Bands and Final Questions'.

It will bring to an end a comprehensive survey that has seen responses from over 1,000 individuals, arguably the most comprehensive investigation of opinions of the banding movement ever held.

Part 7 aims to find out views on contests at youth and university, the training requirements within banding and some concluding questions. It should take about 10-15 minutes to complete.

To complete

To complete this part go to: https://forms.gle/Zjai9qSJnqmtR2yZ7

Others parts can be accessed and completed at:
BBE.org.uk and https://www.bbe.org.uk/what-we-do/brass-band-contesting-survey

Very pleased

Talking to 4BR about the final chapter of the survey, BBE Partnership & Relationship Development Manager, Alex Parker said: "We've been very pleased with both the quantity and quality of people's responses, and we would like to thank every individual who has taken the time to contribute to this significant piece of research into our activities as banders.

We will be presenting the results of the survey later in the year and hope to feed some tangible data into the very interesting debates that have been happening during the lockdown."

Closing date

All submissions for this and all preceding parts must be received by 15th July 2020 when the forms will all be closed.

One participant from each part of the survey is picked at random to receive a year's free individual membership of Brass Bands England. The latest was Dean Evans of Ynyshir Brass Band.

Alex added: "As this final part of the survey covers youth and university bands, we really want to hear the thoughts and opinions of the people who play in these bands as well as the adults who work so hard to lead them.

So if you are the parent of a young brass player please do encourage and support them to let their voices be heard!"
