Welcome to the website of the

North West Regional Brass Bands Championships Committee

The Regional Committee is an autonomous body responsible for the organisation of the North West Regional Championships, which determine the bands who qualify for an invitation to the finals of the National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain, owned by Kapitol Promotions Ltd.

Any band whose bandroom is located within the boundaries of Cheshire, Greater Manchester, Isle of Man, Lancashire, Merseyside and Northern Ireland is eligible to compete in the North West Regional Championships held at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool.

Any new band can enter the Championships and for further information should contact the Regional Secretary – secretary AT nwrbbcc.org.uk – who will explain the procedure and give guidance on registering your band.   Please make contact as early as possible to allow for your band to be graded, and bands should not assume automatic Fourth Section grading.   Test pieces are announced in September and so it is recommended grading is done as close to September as possible so that bands purchase the relevant test piece.

All officers and regional committee members are elected at the Annual General Meeting in accordance with the NWRBBCC Constitution. The AGM is held in September and all bands on the grading table are invited to send a representative to the meeting.
