The future of banding took to the stage recently , for the 2022 National Youth Brass Band Championships of Great Britain . From ' veteran ' youth bands to groups that had been formed only weeks earlier , all levels of ability and experience were on show in Corby - and what a moment it was for them all . After the performance ' drought ' of the past couple of years , the thrill and buzz of getting on stage will have been huge for these youngsters - it ' s why we all do it , after all . Well done to everyone who took part and read on for coverage from the event . Watch it on-demand , courtesy of BrassPass . tv ,.
At the other end of the spectrum , two of England ' s banding heavyweights joined forces recently for a massed band concert . Brighouse and Rastrick invited Black Dyke to join it for a concert which had been due to take place two years ago , although COVID-19 had other plans . Finally bringing the concert to fruition will have been satisfying for all - Steven Mead reports on a memorable evening in Huddersfield .
There will be no issue of British Bandsman next week , but keep in touch online for the latest banding news and updates .
