Grading for New Bands

Any ungraded band wishing to enter the West of England Regional Championships must apply to the Council of West of England Brass Band Associations (WEBBA) for grading. The Council will assess the standard of the band in question by whatever means available, which may include having the band assessed independently at the band's expense and will then allocate the appropriate grading accordingly.

Any requests for grading should be made in writing to Sue Oldfield, WEBBA Secretary, 16, Bowring Close, EXETER, EX1 3TU on the band's headed paper and signed by two band officials.
