Brass Band England presents The Brass Band Conference 2019. The conference, continuing on our theme of ‘Better Banding for All’ will present a diverse range of speakers, workshops, performances and awards for everyone in banding.
BBE’s AGM (optional, for members only) will be held in the morning, followed by the opening of conference activities with the main speaker, higher acclaimed composer Edward Gregson. Following this, delegates will have a choice of break-out workshops to choose from delivered by a mixture of BBE staff and industry experts. These sessions cover Safeguarding, Copyright, Fundraising, Diversity and Inclusion, Marketing and Mental Health with representatives from PRS, Sheffield University, IVE and Arts Council England all leading sessions.
The afternoon session starts with a lively panel discussion, chaired by BBE’s Chief Executive Office Kenneth Crookston, on this year’s ‘Big Question’ - What is the purpose of Brass Band Contests? BBE look forward to welcoming a diverse range of representatives from across the banding community to be part of the debate. Confirmed panelists will be announced in the coming weeks.
After another opportunity to take part in one of BBE’s selection of breakout workshops, the day will come to a close with a wrap-up session and awards ceremony.
Two members from each BBE member organisation are entitled to sign up for free.
