The history of GYBB.....
GYBB was formed in 2005 to provide grade 5+ brass and percussion players with the opportunity to work with leading conductors and soloists.  The band has since won many national awards, raised money for charity and performed both at home and abroad.  Performance venues have included Birmingham Symphony Hall, Royal Albert Hall and Cheltenham Town Hall.

The band has attended the  National Youth Brass Band Championships at the Royal Northern College of Music 8 times and now performs in the Open Section of the championships. 


Throughout the year there are workshops led by bands linked to the , Gloucestershire Brass Band Association and the Cotswold Edge Brass Festival.  Check out their websites for regular updates of forthcoming events.
