BBE Christmas shutdown 2023

BBE's annual Christmas shutdown announced
Thursday, 30 November, 2023

2023 has been a whirlwind of a year for the BBE network, with both Youth Champs and The Brass Band Conference seeing record attendance, and our team continuing to support the delivery of the Brass in Concert Festival, alongside our busy programme of networking and training events for bands

We’ll be taking our usual break for the Christmas period; the BBE office will be closed from 5pm on Wednesday 20 December to 9am on Thursday 4 January. All enquiries will be responded to as soon as possible upon reopening.

Come the new year, we’ll be full steam ahead into our BBE events schedule. Our first webinar will be ‘Essentials of being a charity trustee’, hosted by our Chief Operating Officer and Fundraising Manager on Tuesday 9 January.

If you have any questions for the team prior to the Christmas break, you can email us at or call us on 01226 771015.

Finally, we know it’s early but we’d like to wish all our fellow banders a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
