No solo contest in 2022

To all members and participants,

It is with regret that we will not be able to host our Solo and Quartet Contest for 2022. We have had great difficulty organising the event this year due to circumstances beyond our control. We are now looking forward and are in the planning stage for the 2023 Solo and Quartet Contest, which we hope to present in March or May 2023. The date will be made public as soon as confirmed.

Please also look out for our annual Massed Band event, which we hope will be returning in 2023.

We always welcome new member bands to the West Midland Brass Band Association. All members receive discounted entry to our contest and membership gives you important representation on the Regional Committee.

Please contact WMBBA Chairperson Barbara Dunscombe via email with any queries – bjdunscombe@googlemail.com We look forward to seeing you all soon

Cancellation of Events due to Covid-19

Important Notice

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

  • Big Brass Band on 21st March

  • Solo and Quartet Contest on 3rd May

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.

It is hoped that the events can be re-arranged for a future date, but given the current situation no confirmed future dates can yet be given.

We appreciate that this may cause disappointment to those who planned to attend. For any further information, pleaseĀ Contact Us
