Posted in: Latest News,BYBA News

On Sunday 9th July, bands and corps of the Traditional Youth Marching Bands Association and British Youth Band Association will come together at the Summer Rhythm Band Contest for their first ever joint event.

Comets PE

Comets PE will be in competition

Eighteen groups will compete across five classes making this one of the largest marching youth music events in the country this year.

Talking about the event TYMBA Chairman Carl Nelson said “I’m really looking forward to the event and it promises to be a great day. I hope this is the first of many joint events that both BYBA and TYMBA can host. I’d like to thank all the bands for supporting the event and also the organisers for their continued hard work in putting the event together.”

While BYBA Chairman Paul Cartwright added “I’ve been keen for BYBA & TYMBA to work jointly since informal meetings commenced through the UK Marching Band Alliance (which includes DCUK). I am therefore pleased that we are able to do this at Daventry, and I offer all those competing my very best wishes”

Both BYBA and TYMBA have been keen to make this a truly joint event, so the classes will alternate between the two associations.  This will give members of both organisations the opportunity to watch and support bands that they may never have had the opportunity to see before, not to mention a great chance to meet up and make friends with other band nuts!
