The UniBrass Contest
UniBrass is the annual University Brass Band Championships of Great Britain. Each year, university brass bands compete in two sections to win the prestigious title of UniBrass Trophy Champion or UniBrass Shield Champion.
Run by students for students, UniBrass is an entertainment contest, with bands judged on both their musical ability and how entertaining they are within their 20 minute performance. The only event of its kind in the world, UniBrass forges strong links between universities whilst keeping young brass musicians involved in live music.
The next entertainments contest, UniBrass 2022 will take place at the University of Sheffield on Saturday 5th February
