Festival of Brass in Gloucestershire

Gloucestershire Brass Band Association (GBBA) are pleased to announce a new venture in their calendar of events when they hold a Spring Festival of Brass.

In line with a fresh event the venue will also be new to Brass Bands, with the added benefit of a "warm-up room". The Festival will be held on Sunday 24th April 2016 at the ALL SAINTS ACADEMY in Cheltenham.

The Mentor selected for the day is the experienced Band Trainer, conductor and adjudicator Nigel Seaman. Also the ever-popular Dave Hayward will act as compere to ensure the day runs smoothly.

The Festival will commence at 10.00am with the Training/Un-registered Band section who will perform a 20 minute program. This will be followed by the Registered Bands section.

As it is a Festival, not a contest, there will be no registration and a maximum of 40 players. Although there will be no awards, it is however hoped that Bands will enter into the spirit of the day in terms of borrowed players.

There will be no prizes/awards presented as this is purely a mentoring event.

Entry to listen is FREE!
