Christchurch Town Hall complex 14 to 18 July 2021

The Festival of Brass contest committee is delighted to welcome all bands, soloists, and supporters to Christchurch for the 2021 National Brass Band Championships.

We are excited to have secured the newly restored Christchurch Town Hall, right in the heart of the city.

All events, with the exception of the Invitation Slow Melody “An Evening of Melody” and the Sunday concert “Contrasts in Brass”, are free of charge.

An Evening of Melody on Wednesday evening will have table seating in front of the stage where groups can relax with a drink in hand while listening to the beautiful melodies.

The Open Champion of Champions on Thursday evening is now a free event.

The festival week will finish with a fantastic concert experience – Contrasts in Brass: the virtuosity of the National Band and the versatility of the New Zealand Army Band.

There is plenty to explore in and around our revitalised city. The contest committee has partnered with ChristchurchNZ, and their website covers all that Christchurch and Canterbury has to offer. https://www.christchurchnz.com/stiva
