National Championships

For 2019 the TYMBA Nationals move to Portsmouth.

In another first, the event will take place over two days thanks to our hosts, The Royal Marines Band Service.

Day one will see bands working with some of the best musicians in the world, fine-tuning their routines before taking to the arena the following day.

Thanks to the Marines, our young members will also be getting a glimpse of life onboard ship with accommodation being provided on HMS Bristol.

Andy Downton, Chair of TYMBA, said: “This is a really exciting opportunity and a unique experience for our bands.

“This really cements our relationship with The Royal Marines and long may it continue.”

Information for bandmasters can be found on within the Member’s area of the website.
