More news from SWBBA

The 67th Annual Championships of the South West Brass Band Association will be held on Saturday 2nd November 2013 at The Riviera International Conference Centre, Torquay commencing at 10.00am and continuing through until mid evening. The Adjudicators will be Jim Davies and Derek Renshaw, both from Yorkshire and members of the Association of Brass Band Adjudicators.

The Association is pleased to report an excellent entry of thirty bands competing in six sections, with the Riviera Centre and Torquay welcoming bands and their supporters located in Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Hampshire and Dorset. It is also pleasing to note the attendance of two Youth Bands and two Training Bands in their respective sections. Full list of entries.

The presentation of awards will be made by the Association’s Life Associate Member, Sue Richards, and the composer Kenneth Downie.

The Championships are unique in the brass band movement, as no monetary awards have ever been made to the winning bands, and acknowledging the high cost of travel etc, the Association is extremely proud that it’s member and guest bands continue to show such loyalty to the Association.

An all-day ticket is available on the day at only £7 (with concessions).

Further information available from the Association's Secretary, Brian Elliott, telephone01752 892056 / 07966522091 or brian@swbba.fsnet.co.uk
