Wellington is in for a blast in April when the city hosts New Zealand’s National Brass Band Championships for the first time in more than a decade.

The A and B grade events feature bands from the top two grades of brass banding in New Zealand. Wellington Brass are the current champion A Grade band of New Zealand having won the contest for the past four years and hoping to make it a record-breaking five in a row at their home contest, although there will be stiff competition from other A Grade bands hoping to regain the top spot.

In the B Grade, Hamilton City Brass won the title in 2016 and will be hoping to retain it in 2017, although there will be a number of other bands vying for the B Grade Challenge Shield.

This will be the 137th year of national competition and everyone has been keenly contested. Audiences will hear a wide range of music as well as world-class performances from the top bands.

We particularly encourage those from across the Wellington region, who have not seen the championships here since 2005, to come along.

Note that 1 and 2 day passes get you admission to all A, B, C, D and Youth Grade band events.
