NCBF 2015 /16 Season

That's it, the Regionals are concluded for another Year.

We now look forward to the National Festival at the RNCM on the 9th and 10th April 2016.

All Platinum award bands are automatically invited to the National Festival. Gold award bands need to watch their emails for a potential invite.

We wish you compliments of the Season and hope to see as many of you as possible either playing or simply visiting the RNCM to hear the best of the country's wind bands.

The National Festival 2016 will take place on the 9th and 10th April 2016
at The Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester.

Repertoire Lists 2015 / 2016

The lists for the season are now available by clicking the link to the right.

To support and encourage new British composers there is a requirement for all Wind Bands to programme at least "one" programme item by a British composer from the repertoire list. The online version is searchable to show British Composers and new publications for 2015 / 2016.
