Oxfordshire and District Brass Band Association

Winter Contest 2016


Owing to a very strong entry this year, ODBBA regrets that entries for the Winter Contest have had to be closed earlier than advertised. Any entries received between now and the original closing date will be added to a waiting list, and invitations to compete will be issued in the event of a withdrawal of another band. We apologise for any inconvenience caused, but look forward to a fantastic day of music-making on the 28th February.


The Rules and Entry form for the 2016 Winter Contest are now available for download.

This is an own-choice March and Testpiece contest, which provides a great opportunity to try out your Area testpiece before the big day.

A strong entry is expected, so please don’t delay entering your band!
