Each year OUBB takes part in Unibrass: the University Brass Band Championship of Great Britain. It is held annually, run by students for students. Every year university bands compete to win the prestigious title of champion university brass band. The contest is an entertainment contest where bands are judged both on their musical ability and how entertaining they are. UniBrass is the only contest of its kind in the world, forging strong links between universities whilst keeping brass players involved in live music.
In 2017, our former musical director and conductor Myrddin Rees Davies won Best Student Conductor.
