With the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, BYBA announced that the first half of the 2020 summer season had been cancelled. On Sunday 26th April 2020 BYBA Membership along with BYBA Council members, discussed at length the viability of a competitive 2020 season this summer. Having taken into account, amongst other things, members health and safety, rehearsal time & venue availability it was, with heavy hearts, unanimously agreed to cancel the remainder of the BYBA 2020 competitive summer season which is a first in our 46 years as an association.

This decision was not taken lightly but with the continued uncertainty about when social distancing restrictions might be lifted and, when they are, to what extent there still might be issues surrounding larger events, the cancellation of all our competitive events removes the current uncertainty.

Best Regards
BYBA Council
