Brass Bands England (BBE) has announced that the 2022 National Youth Brass Band Championships of Great Britain will take place on the weekend of Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th March.
The event is being coordinated by BBE and will be held at Corby Business Academy in Corby, Northamptonshire.
The event will feature an Elementary Section (for 14 and under), Intermediate Section (16 and under), and Championship Section (18 and under), as well as a Debut Section, which will provide an opportunity for many young players to gain their first experience of playing in a public performance.
This will be open to beginner players of all ages and has an ethos of providing a positive experience to help continue development and progress.
Alex Parker, Brass Bands England's Relationship & Partnership Development Manager told 4BR: "We are thrilled to be bringing the Youth Champs back after its recent hiatus.
I hope that as many bands as possible will be able to join us and that those performing publicly for the first time in the Debut Section will enjoy the experience.
We know there's a lot to consider in order to get ready for the event, so we've announced details early to give bands time to plan."
Applications from bands to participate in the event will launch on Friday 10th September and will remain open until Friday 17th December 2021.
Bands can register for the BBE mailing list to be notified when applications open.
