BBE is proud to recognise those individuals and organisations in the banding world that have made an exceptional contribution to brass banding. Be it through inspiring young people, tireless dedication, leading imaginative creative projects and collaborations, or bringing about positive social change. There is plenty to be celebrated!

This year Brass Bands England has made a couple of changes, the first of which is the Lifetime Achievement Award is now to be separately selected by a board of individuals. The new Green Hero Award is dedicated to individuals and organisations who have taken great strides within the past year to make their banding more eco-friendly. 

The six categories are as follows:

  • Band Project of the Year
  • Brass Band Conductor, supported by the Brass Band Conductors’ Association
  • Green Hero (NEW)
  • Outstanding Contribution
  • Services to Youth
  • Young Bandsperson

More information on the individual awards can be found on the Awards page.

Following feedback from the Brass Band Conference 2023, we are now asking nominators to provide a photo of their nominee on their voting form. Should the person be shortlisted, this will be used in promotion and a special presentation during this year’s Ceremony.
