GYBB 60th Anniversary Concert and Dinner

2020 sees Gwent Youth Brass Band celebrate their diamond anniversary – 60 years of Brass Banding excellence! To celebrate, Gwent Music will be holding a special concert featuring the Gwent Youth Brass Band, the Gwent Intermediate Brass Band, and a specially put-together Gwent Alumni Brass Band – the past, present, and future of Youth Brass Banding in Gwent.

Celebration Concert

The celebration concert, featuring Gwent’s Youth Brass Band, Intermediate Brass Band, and Alumni Brass Band, is held at Rougemont School, (NP20 6QB), at 3pm on Saturday, 4 January 2020. Tickets are £10, and free for current Gwent Music students. Please visit the Gwent Music Box Office – – to buy your concert tickets.

60th Anniversary Dinner

Following the concert, at 7pm we will be getting together to celebrate the Band’s anniversary in style – with a three-course black tie* dinner at Rougemont School (*black tie optional – we’d prefer to see you there rather than being prevented from attending due to sartorial restrictions!). Join members past and present for an evening of excellent food and the finest company. The 3-course meal is a set-menu, with a meat or vegetarian option for the main course – please check the menu before booking your tickets. Dinner places are £25 a head, and are available at the Gwent Music Box Office – – to book your place.
