New for 2022 Contest Season Pass

The Board of Trustees have received professional advice with regards to Gift Aid and VAT regulations, which means that the benefit of contest entry that a BABS member receives needs to be separated from their main membership subscriptions.

Therefore, we are introducing a ‘Contest Season Pass’, costing £5, which will need to be paid by everyone wishing to compete in a BABS Contest.  This will be in effect for the upcoming 2021-2022 contest season. We have prepared the attached Q&A document to explain this decision in more detail.
