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.

The GBBA has 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.

As well as promoting local brass banding and representing member bands at a national level, the GBBA arranges 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.

Score Library

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:
