With a distinct hint of spring in the air, thoughts are starting to turn towards summer holidays, ice cream on the beach and band competitions!

It’s now just 17 weeks until the first contest of 2017 taking place in Barnsley on the 18th June, entries are already up on 2016 but there’s always room for more!

The British Youth Band Association has classes to cater for all abilities from Cadets to Premier Class and all styles from Traditional to Drum Corps and everything in between!
