UniBrass Comes to the York Barbican


UniBrass is thrilled to announce that the 2018 championships will be held at the York Barbican, on February 17th 2018. Brass bands from across the country will descend on Yorkshire to compete in the Trophy and Shield sections, with full details of the event to be announced soon. Tickets will be sold through the Barbican box office.

The York Barbican is York’s foremost performance venue, hosting a variety of music and comedy events among others. It is also well known for hosting the annual UK Snooker Championships. The Barbican is the ideal venue to facilitate both the sociable atmosphere UniBrass is renowned for, and the increasingly prestigious standing of the championships. UniBrass 2018 Chair Chris Baldwin says: “We’re delighted to be bringing UniBrass to the heart of York at last, not only for the fantastic venue but also the close proximity to the University of York.”

UniBrass 2018 is again hosted by the University of York Brass Band. We’ll be out and about in York over the coming months in preparation for the contest, so keep an eye on our website and social media channels for the latest.
