WHAT ARE THE RULES?

The official rules can be downloaded below. There should be no surprises for those used to entering contests run by any European Barbershop Organisation!

I'M A COMPETITOR - WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO KNOW?

Draft contest timetables are available above on this page for download, so that you can plan your days. Please check regularly for any changes.

In mid September, all competitors were emailed a reminder for the form to fill out with announcement details and song selections for their performance. These forms need to be returned by September 30th at the very latest, and the sooner the better! The form will also be available here on the website to download, in case you lose it.

More details and contestant briefings will be available from the week beginning September 18th.

In advance of the contestant information, here are some brief answers to a few common questions:

CAN SOMEONE ATTEND IF THEY ARE NOT COMPETING?

Anybody can attend - you just need to purchase registration for the day(s) you wish to be there or the full 4 day all-events Convention pass. Do this using the standard registration form on the registration page, which also contains pricing information. Alternatively you can purchase on the door.

WHO IS RUNNING THE CONVENTION?

The event will be hosted by Barbershop in Harmony (BinH), an organisation which is made up of the three Barbershop groups in the UK LABBS, BABS (British Association of Barbershop Singers) and Sweet Adeline Region 31. You can find out more here: Barbershop in Harmony.

WHO ARE THE JUDGES?

Judging panels for the 2017 EBC contests will follow the same format as previous European competitions, with representatives from BHS, LABBS, BABS and Sweet Adelines International (who will judge according to BHS style scoring categories).
