Brass Band Contesting Survey Part 6: Registration

Brass Bands England (BBE) has launched the next part of the Brass Band Contesting Survey currently in progress. This part covers the purpose, process and rules of registration. This survey is designed to find out your views on the current state of brass band contests and if you missed any of the previous parts you can still take part in them too. 
The aim of this survey is to look in more detail at views on contest events. This part should take about 10-15 minutes to complete. 
To take part in the survey please visit the survey page on  or to go direct to Part 6 please go to this link.

One participant from each part of the survey will be picked at random to receive a year’s free individual membership of Brass Bands England. The winner of the fourth part of the survey has been announced as Chris Newbery of Yorkshire Imperial Band. Congratulations Chris. We will be in touch to process your membership! 

Responses continue to arrive

BBE Partnership and Relationship Development Manager, Alex Parker, commented: “There have now been over 1,800 responses to the survey, which is an astonishing number and will form a really significant piece of research. Many of the ideas and responses have been really interesting and we look forward to sharing them in the final report.”
