Please note that the annual Gloucestershire Brass Band Association Contest to be held in 2020 has been cancelled.
The GBBA Committee held out as long as possible before making the only sensible and thoughtful decision. I suspect we will be lucky to see any Brass Band contest in 2020.
It is a shame as we were hoping that this year's large increase in prize money would encourage more bands to enter this friendly, local contest. We also had agreement from Wright & Rounds, via Phil Harper (W&R Music Editor), that they would give special music voucher awards to the Training/Youth band section.
All things considered it would have been a good day as usual for everyone.
If you could share this news I would be most grateful. Also, if you require further information please ask.
Kind regards and many thanks,
GBBA Contest Controller.
(on behalf of the GBBA Executive Committee)
