  The Association of Brass Band Adjudicators hopes to continue its link with Brass Bands England

The Association of Brass Band Adjudicators (AoBBA) has told 4BR that they continue to enjoy a close working relationship with Brass Bands England, and were delighted to link up once more at the recent National Youth Championships.

James Holt who is currently undertaking the adjudicator training programme was given the opportunity to work alongside official judges Richard Ward and AoBBA member Stephen Sykes in the Championship Section.

High quality

Martin Heartfield, AoBBA's Training Officer told 4BR: "We are very grateful to Brass Band England for allowing one of our trainees to have such a high quality experience as part of their ongoing training programme.

This is part of our progressive outlook to working with leading organisations and we are looking forward to working closely with BBE in the future and developing new initiatives for the benefit of the next generation of adjudicators."

Pleased

AoBBA Chairman Mark Wilkinson added: "We're pleased that our adjudicator training programme is achieving recognition and that we now have a number of adjudicators who have qualified to be full members of the Association."

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?
