  The 2019 National Youth Championship entry date has been extended

Brass Bands England has extended the entry date for the 2019 National Youth Championships of Great Britain to ensure that bands that have returned to rehearsal following the Christmas break can still get their applications in.

Great take-up

Speaking to 4BR, BBE Relationship & Partnership Development Manager Alex Parker said: "We have already had a great take-up but we have also had a number of responses that have come from bands that have just started up rehearsals again in the New Year.

We want to ensure that no band misses out on a fantastic opportunity, so the deadline has therefore been extended to 9th January and the draw will be made on 10th January."

The 2019 National Youth Brass Band Championships of Great Britain will be held at Warwick Hall and Bridge House Theatre of Warwick School on Saturday 30th March.

Application Information

Full details for competing bands can be found at bbe.org.uk including links to the information pack, rules and entry form.

Bands should register and pay their entry fee on the website to secure a place in the competition.

Bands are advised to take note of some very important details, including child licensing regulations that will affect every participating group.

Support us for less than a cup of coffee...

4BR wants to ensure that the brass band movement remains vibrant and relevant. We also want to be able to question, challenge and critically examine those who run and play in it, producing high quality journalism that informs as well as entertains our readers.

So if like us you value a strong, independent perspective on the brass band world - then why not consider becoming a supporter and help make our future and that of a burgeoning brass band movement more secure.

So one less cappuccino then?
