About the Event
Tickets available here!
The National Concert Band Festival celebrates and promotes the music and activities of wind bands and jazz bands by holding regional festivals across the UK and a National Festival. The organisation aims to provide unique performing opportunities in a friendly, welcoming and musically enriching environment.
Bands enter into their local regional festival where they perform in front of their peers, parents, audience, and NCBF adjudicators who offer feedback based on the NCBF Award Criteria. Bands are not competing against each other but are critiqued against the various aspects of performance and are awarded a certificate signifying their success: Platinum, Gold Silver or Bronze.
Bands fall into a variety of tailored Band Classes that enable them to perform amongst similar band types. The bands who perform at the higher standards are then invited to the annual NCBF National Festival. The National Festival is hosted at such venues as: Royal Northern College of Music, Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and The Sage Gateshead. Here, bands perform again, building on their earlier experiences and take the opportunity to aim for the highest standards achievable.
