The Durham County Brass Band Association website will feature all the news and information for the committee and associate bands in County Durham. All brass bands are welcome to submit news items for publishing in the blog and add events to the listing.
DCBBA have been in constant contact with organisers of both Beamish and Picnic in the Park contests and have made the decision to cancel BOTH events.
At this time when the Covid-19 pandemic and measures taken by the government are impacting on our everyday lives we wanted to make this decision well in advance of both events.
Over the coming months, our banding community will find things very difficult, not least of all, the social side of the hobby we love so much and I am already planning an event(s) whereby when we are able to come together again we can celebrate the wonderful banding family that this area has and I am proud to be a part of and represent.
Until that time comes can I please ask that you all stay safe, follow any guidance that has been asked of us and look after ourselves and each other.
Jo Wright - DCBBA Secretary
