Discount on 2022 Regionals test-pieces

Saturday 18 September, 2021

Brass Bands England has teamed up with retailer Band Supplies to offer a discount to members purchasing test-pieces for the 2022 Regional Championship.

In keeping with tradition, test-pieces for the Regionals are due to be announced at this year’s Sections 1-4 Finals, taking place on September 18 and 19 in Cheltenham.

Once announced, BBE member bands will be able to place an order for their 2022 test-piece with Band Supplies and can receive £10 off a set of parts, plus free postage.

To place an order, bands should contact Band Supplies by phone on 0113 245 3097 or email at, stating that the band is a member of Brass Bands England. Memberships will be verified prior to postage of the pieces. Band membership will be required to access the discount, rather than individual membership.

Kenny Crookston, chief executive officer of Brass Bands England, commented: “BBE are pleased to be able to work with Band Supplies to support our member bands as they return to contesting. Upcoming events presented by Kapitol at Cheltenham and the Royal Albert Hall are a great opportunity for bands to get back to what they love, and I’m very much looking forward to discovering what the pieces for next year will be.”
