The contest archive has been launched! A full record of the National Brass Band Championships from 1900 to 2010 is now available.
Full details have now been compiled of all the National Brass Band Championships (Championship section). It’s been a mammoth project to collect and collate the information, but it is now available for you to view online or download as a PDF document.
You now have the opportunity to find out who competed, who was conducting, what was being played, the draw numbers of each band and the top results of the day for every contest that took place from 1900 to 2010! All the information you could need to go down memory lane or take inspiration from brass band days gone by!
The contest archive provides an important historical record of this significant national contest and provides interesting reading – surely one of the most comprehensive collections of contest information available!
