The 2014 National Youth Brass Band Championships of Great Britain, managed by a team of volunteers headed by Gary Walczak and Arnold Tattersfield, was an inspirational day at this year’s venue, the University of Salford.
Brass Bands England congratulate the winning bands and all participants, their musical directors, parents, tutors and supporters. We were filled with pride at the sensational playing by so many young people.
The day was followed by thousands of people both present and via Twitter – see #nybbc2014 and #futurebrass
