The Brass Band Conference "improving our art" 25 September 2021 #BBConf

The Brass Band Conference is back! Once again Brass Bands England’s annual Conference will be live-streamed so you can take part at home. This year’s theme of ‘Improving our art’ will highlight a diverse range of creative topics, speakers and performances.

Just as at the 2020 Conference, the day's events will be a mixture of live and pre-recorded content that will be free to access to all who register in advance. The day's events will be streamed by with lots of opportunity for those watching at home to send in questions and take part in workshops.

Who is the Conference for?

The Brass Band Conference is for anyone and everyone with an interest in banding. This year’s topic, ‘Improving our art’, is accessible to band players, managers, and conductors alike. It is our opportunity as a community to come together (even if it’s virtually) to celebrate what we do, network with others and hear from inspirational speakers within our sector.

The conference day will also include BBE’s Annual General Meeting, to which representatives from member bands and individual members will be invited to attend via Zoom. This will take place on the morning of the event and registration details will be circulated in early September.

How much does it cost?

Absolutely nothing. The Brass Band Conference is free to access for everyone, and recordings of the sessions will be available after the day's events.

Who is involved?

Please find a full schedule for the day here. Register for BBE updates to be kept informed.

Will the Awards be presented?

On the day, BBE will be revealing the winners of the Brass Bands England Awards 2021, recognising individuals who have made an exceptional contribution to brass banding.  Winners have been nominated by the banding public and selected by the Brass Bands England board of trustees. Each award winner will receive a memento to commemorate their achievement. Make sure you’re tuned-in to hear the announcements live!
