Opportunities at Brass Bands England

Sunday 14 November, 2021

Brass Bands England is looking to add to its team, with paid and voluntary positions available.

Volunteers are sought for banding events in 2022, offering the opportunity to attend and be a part of running significant occasions in the banding calendar, as well as benefit from event management experience.

Participants will be asked to fulfil a range of duties such as acting as event runners, stage crew, and stewards. Initial volunteer positions are available to support Youth Champs 2022 in Corby (March 25-26, 2022) and the European Brass Band Festival in Birmingham (April 29-May 1, 2022).

Training days will be held in Barnsley and Leicester and reasonable travel expenses and accommodation can be provided. Applications should be submitted by 9am on Monday, November 15.

Meanwhile, BBE’s current paid vacancy is its new marketing and communications assistant role, which will support the organisation’s communications to its membership and with the wider banding community.

The role can be fulfilled remotely or from the BBE offices in Barnsley. Applications are open until November 22. BBE also continues to welcome those interested in the Brass Band Archive to come and explore the collection whilst preparing it for its reopening in 2023. The archive team is currently part-way through cataloguing the collection and transporting it to its new home in the University of Huddersfield’s Heritage Quay, where it will be available to researchers and the general public.

Archive volunteer roles can be carried out on-site or remotely. Information on all BBE opportunities can be found online or by emailing:
