British Youth Band Association Announce Provisional 2022/23 Contest Dates
The British Youth Band Association (BYBA) are delighted to announce the provisional conest dates for the 2022 and 2023 outdoor summer seasons. Typically taking place in stadiums across the country, BYBA contests see drum corps and marching bands of several flavours compete to become national champions.
The 2022 season kicks off up North in Yorkshire on the 19th June before heading down to Coventry and Corby for a double-header on the 2nd/3rd July. Thurrock then plays host to the fourth show of the season on the weekend of the 16th/17th July.
After the summer break, the second half of the season begins in the Midlands on the weekend of the 3rd/4th of September. The penultimate show of the season is in Stafford on the 18th September, just 2 weeks before the National Championships on the weekend of the 1st/2nd October.
For ease of planning, the 2023 dates are the exact same weekends as the 2022 dates – the only change is that the Coventry show is not currently planned to run in 2023.
