The Contest

The UniBrass Contest

UniBrass is the University Brass Band Championship of Great Britain. Held annually, it is run by students for students. Every year university bands compete against each other to win the prestigious title of UniBrass Trophy Champion or UniBrass Shield Champion. UniBrass is an entertainment contest, with bands judged on both their musical ability and how entertaining they are. The only event of its kind in the world, UniBrass forges strong links between universities whilst keeping young brass musicians involved in live music.

UniBrass 2021 has been postponed to Summer 2021 due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, and will be hosted by the University of Sheffield.
