New BBP rules come into force from January

Three significant rule changes come into force for contests using BBP Registry Rules — including the Regional Championships.

  The new rules come into force from January 1st

The BBP Registry has announced three significant rule changes, effective from 1st January 2022.

The changes will apply to the National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain series, as well as the other events that use the BBP registration system.

Assist bands

Speaking about the new rule changes, Tim Jones (BBP Registrar) told 4BR: "The National Forum of the National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain recently met to discuss the Nationals contest series, but also to assess the current state of brass banding in the UK following the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The National Forum has suggested three changes to the BBP Registry Rules to assist bands in fielding a full complement of performers at the Regional Championships 2022 and onwards".

The BBP Registry Advisory Body has recommended the rule changes to be implemented effective from 1st January 2022.

All Registry transactions processed before 1st January 2022 will be subject to the existing rules that are in place.

Updated Registry Rule Book

The updated BBP Registry Rule Book will be produced & distributed to member bands in early January, and the updated rules will also be published on the BBP Registry website ( www.bbpregistry.com) at the same time.
