Yorkshire Band Championships to Sheffield – Update

Trombonist and Mercury Newspaper Editor Andrew Platts meets with Yorkshire brass band officials in a few weeks to discuss transferring the Yorkshire Brass Band Championships from Bradford to Sheffield.

I will be meeting with the Yorkshire area committee on April 19th. We have the organisation in place to effect a transfer of the area to Sheffield and we have sponsorship. The event would take the form of a brass band festival with a gala concert. I have spoken with Sheffield City Hall and they are supportive and confident that they can effectively host the event. It would be a very good move. – Andrew Platts
