We are excited to share with you that as part of the BABS 50th celebration at Sing2024, we will be trialling the idea of Open Contests. What this means, is that for this year, the contests will be completely open to everyone, regardless of gender. 

As part of our 50th anniversary celebration, we wanted the opportunity to showcase "The Best of British Best", and having a contest which allows all of our members to actively participate will be the best way to achieve this. 

We appreciate that this will be a big change for a lot of you, and we are very keen to hear what you, our members, have to say on the matter. We also acknowledge that you will have a lot of questions. To that end, we have put together a Frequently Asked Questions document which will be consistently updated, as well as a short initial feedback form. There will also be a number of opportunities to talk directly to myself and other Board Members at a series of 'Town Hall' events. We will have another member consultation period after Sing2024 to gather feedback on people's experiences.

You will be able to access all of the resources mentioned above by following the links below.
