A large collection of scores is held jointly by SWBBA and WEBBA. Individual scores are now available to borrow at an admin fee of £5.

This may be particularly useful for bands competing in a contest where they require a second score. A list of the available scores can be viewed on the WEBBA website...

It's nearly that time of year again!

The schedules for the annual GBBA Contest, to be held on November 30th in Ross-on-Wye, will be emailed to bands at the end of July. Entry forms will also be available on the website to download.

Welcome to the Gloucestershire Brass Band Association's website. Please look around and find out more about how the GBBA works and who is involved.

Did you know that as well as promoting brass banding in the local area, several members of the Executive Committee represent our bands at a national level?

The GBBA have a wide range of member bands, from Championship to Non-contesting level. Spread throughout our regions of Gloucestershire, Hereforshire, Somerset, Wiltshire and Worcestershire, our bands perform at contests and concerts all year round for the enjoyment of their audiences and themselves.

We arrange and run two contests per year, for both member and non-member bands. An Entertainment Contest is held early in the year, with an Own Choice Test Piece Contest following towards the close of the year.

In partnership with Gloucestershire Music, we also help the talented youth of our community to develop. Please take the time to support our work and help further develop the musical heritage of our area.
