Return to rehearsals
The Executive Committee are pleased to announce that following advice from the Government and Brass Band England we are now able to resume band rehearsals. However, whilst the previous guidance for performing arts was simply advisory, the changes made to introduce the ‘rule of six’ now set these requirements out in law.
