Roll of Honour
What are we celebrating?
GBBA are proud to celebrate those people who have contributed over 50 years or more to the brass band movement. Here, we record those who have been awarded for their years of service, giving back to the movement the support and enthusiasm for brass band music that they themselves had experienced.
What is the award?
GBBA present a certificate and badge of recognition for 50 years or more service to the brass band movement, which includes participating in any activity associated with brass bands. For example, those who have won awards have played, conducted, and organised events for brass bands throughout their lives.

How do you apply for an award?
You can nominate yourself for an award or someone else. Please contact GBBA Secretary Karin naming the person being nominated, their relationship to GBBA member band/s (current and/or past band membership should be included), and describe what they have done for the brass band movement. Don't forget to include your (nominator) and the person being nominated (nominee) contact details so we can get in touch!
If you nominate someone else in secret and wish to surprise them with their award, please let us know an appropriate time, date, and location to make the presentation. A GBBA committee member will then arrange to present the Certificate at a venue of your choice. In the past, GBBA have presented the award at a band engagement, rehearsal, or workshop.
