Membership of the British Youth Band Association for 2024 is now open! Join us for our 50th Anniversary year and help us celebrate in style.
The 2023 Individuals and Ensembles (I&E) competiton, scheduled for Sunday 19th November, is unfortunately being postponed until the new year. We are currently exploring dates around the end of January and will confirm a new date in due course.
BYBA's Individuals and Ensembles (I&E) competition is your chance to stand up and show the rest of the banding world what you're capable of. We have categories to accommodate everyone. Play flute? No problem! The woodwind category’s for you. Want to show off your moves with a rifle? Of course! Individual colourguard is your category. Oh, you have a beatboxing grime collective? We have no idea what that is – but no worries at all! There’s the entertainment category for you.
There's just a month to go until the BYBA National Championships take place at Steel Park, Corby, on the 8th October. Bands and corps from across the UK will fight it out for the title of National Champions!
At the British Youth Band Association (BYBA), we are committed to providing a safe and enjoyable environment for all participants, staff, and spectators at our events. As part of our ongoing efforts to protect privacy and ensure the responsible use of media, we are pleased to introduce our updated Event Media Policy for the upcoming season.
