Brass at the Guild 2017 & British Open Youth at the Guild

The competitions will include five sections plus The British Open Youth at the Guild Festival and will take place together with Brass at the Guild 2016 in the Guild Hall and Charter Theatre.

In addition to the prizes in the Championship Section bands will have the opportunity to qualify for the Spring Festival Senior Trophy competition, although this does not apply to bands who have pre-qualified.

A total of 40 to 50 Brass Bands are expected to compete and a wealth of fine music performances is ensured.

Preston Guild Hall hosts two fantastic venues, The Grand Hall Arena was designed as a prestigious concert venue seating over 2,000 guests. The Charter Theatre is a smaller venue with a much more traditional theatre ambiance seating 780 guests.
