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.
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.
