I look forward to welcoming you to Hamilton in July 2019 for Ngā Taumahekeheke-ā-Tira pūtētere o Aoteroa - The New Zealand Brass Band Championships, for the first time in 40 years.
Hamilton is now an events city and we are delighted that the Hamilton City Council have come on board as the major event sponsor. The facilities in our city are world class and I’m sure you will be impressed by the Claudelands Events Centre for the Solo, Party and A/B grade events, and the Southwell School Auditorium for the C/D and Youth grades.
I hope you can make time while you are in Hamilton and the Waikato to experience some of the wonderful attractions we have. We have great restaurants and bars and for the family the ‘Destination Playgrounds’ around the city are fantastic. The Hamilton Gardens are amazing, Hobbiton and the Waitomo Caves are just down the road and the river bike ride through the city and out to Ngaruawahia is one of the best one day rides in the world (according to my father).
We have a fantastic team putting the contest together and we look forward to seeing you soon!
