NYBBGB is looking for Friends

If you’re a fan of the National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain, you can make a real difference by joining the NYBB & NCBB Friends. This is an organisation set up for the mutual benefit of its members and of the two bands it supports. Membership is open to anyone – former members, parents and friends of current members and all who admire these two flagships of the world of brass bands. From just £2.50 a month, you can help give Britain’s most talented young musicians an amazing opportunity to take their talent to new frontiers and keep brass band music alive and kicking. Your contribution not only helps to develop a new generation of brass players and percussionists; it also enables the NYBB and NCBB to meet other young people nationwide. With no direct government funding, the NYBB and NCBB hugely values the kindness of people like you. In return for your friendship, NYBBGB is pleased to show their gratitude through a variety of benefits that will bring you closer to the country’s biggest brass band. “The National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain under the leadership of Artistic Director, Bramwell Tovey shines like a constellation of stars” Review from a concert at The Bridgewater Hall, Manchester.
