Yorkshire Regional Brass Band Championships!

This weekend bands from all across Yorkshire compete against each other at St George’s Hall in Bradford.

Bands are organised into “sections” and ranked depending on their level of musicality and technical proficiency. It’s a bit like divisions/leagues in football – except that brass bands’ promotions and relegations are decided at this one event each year.

So it’s “break a leg” to all Sheffield bands (and to Barnsley Building Society Brass Band, with whom the NW Sheffield News Editor will be playing!).

Sheffield Bands, competing in the Championship, first, third and fourth sections, are:

Bands across the UK will take part in similar events in their own areas throughout early March and successful bands will go through to a National Finals competition in October.

All the best to everyone from North West Sheffield News!
