The Association of Brass Band Adjudicators (AoBBA) are pleased to announce that the association are, once again, to run a joint initiative with the Yorkshire Regional Brass Band Committee (YRBBC) in the promotion of the ‘Young Adjudicators Scheme’ at the Yorkshire Regional competition at the Town Hall, Huddersfield on Saturday 5th March (2nd section).

The ‘Young Adjudicators’ will be mentored by an AoBBA member.

The official adjudicators will both meet with the young adjudicator’s panel to discuss their approaches to adjudication.

The ‘Young Adjudicators’ will also be provided with:

  • Seating near the official adjudicators box
  • Test piece score
  • Adjudicator’s Remarks Sheets
  • Adjudicator’s Results Form       
  • Meet with the adjudicators
  • Band Member tickets for the young people and their parent/guardian(s)

There are four places for young people aged of 11- 18 at each contest, who wish to test their adjudicating skills. In the first instance, applications are welcomed from those who have not previously taken part in the scheme. Numbers wishing to take part are expected to be high so early application is encouraged.  Anyone who wishes to participate should contact:
