GBBA Contest Cancelled
The Executive Committee of the Gloucestershire Brass Band Association has announced that its annual Contest to be held in 2020 has been cancelled. Speaking about the decision Kevin Ford, Contest Controller, said, “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, 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.”
