In the run up to Christmas, BBE is getting into the festive spirit with a seasonal deal and celebration of banding activity at this special time of year!
Following the success of using social media to show the world what bands got up to over Christmas 2018, Brass Bands England is once again running its #spottedcarolling campaign.
We would like you to send us pictures from all the different places in which bands find themselves during the Christmas season, whether it’s sitting in Santa's sleigh in the local high street, performing on the stage of a major concert hall or anything in between! We want to create a record of all the things bands are doing to make the Christmas season extra special for the public nationwide and we are hoping that members up and down the country will contribute.”
Using the #spottedcarolling, please send your pictures to us on Facebook, Twitter or email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will tweet them for you. You can check out some of the photos sent last year in this video.
BBE Partnership and Development Manager, Alex Parker, commented: “Christmas is always a special time for our member bands and we are delighted to be able to help them spread their message in this way. We look forward to seeing the multitude of ways they have festive fun and hope that as many of our members as possible get into the Christmas spirit!”
In addition, BBE has an early Christmas present for everyone, with a 10% early bird discount on tickets to next year’s Youth Champs at the Magna Science Adventure Centre in South Yorkshire. The deal lasts until midnight on New Year's Eve and tickets can be bought at bbe.org.uk/events
