NYBBGB secures ACE investment programme funding to 2026
Following our application to the Arts Council England, we are delighted to announce that we have received the 2023-26 Investment Programme funding.
This is fantastic news, especially coming at the end of our celebratory platinum jubilee year when we have showcased the hard work and dedication of everyone involved in the band to build the best musical experiences for children and young people. The funding secures our position for another three years, meaning we can build on the successes of 2022 – launching our young conductors competition, our Ambassador Ensemble’s educational tour of schools in Greater Manchester, opening the Gramophone Classical Music Awards and working with Martin Green, and the Royal Marines Band Service, not to mention fabulous concerts at Huddersfield Town Hall, Wells Cathedral, the Royal College of Music, and The Royal Albert Hall!
NYBBGB CEO Mark Bromley commented: “We are delighted to receive this funding and thank Arts Council England and the Department of Education for their continued support of our mission – to provide the brightest young brass and percussion musicians the opportunity to develop their musicianship, play together and inspire others. Our celebratory year has seen many highs, and this wonderful news really sets us up for more success in 2023.”
John Gillam, Chairman of The NYBBGB Trustees added: “The board of trustees had every faith that The NYBBGB would receive this funding, thanks to the hard work and dedication of the staff in creating memorable musical experiences for the children and young people in the bands. We look forward to working with Mark and his team to build on these successes over the next three years.”
