Important Notice

With regret the WMBBA have decided to cancel the upcoming events:

  • Big Brass Band on 21st March

Given the unprecedented current situation and advice given by Public Health England and Brass Bands England, the WMBBA cannot host these events and risk the health of anyone attending.
