BCA Spring Updates

After the very successful BCA International & National Graded Anniversary Festival held in February 

BCA International and National Graded Anniversary Festival 2021

The BCA has been the official member association of the CMA for some years and it has become the usual custom for the BCA to hold qualifications for the CMA Trophée Mondial & International Open Trophy during the NAO UK Championships.
This year due to the Covid restrictions these are to be held online and full details can now be found at

CMA National Qualifications 2021

With categories from 7-year-old up to adults we sincerely hope there will be a number of UK accordionists of all ages who take this opportunity to enter and participate in this and then maybe the 71st CMA Trophée Mondial which is also to be held online in September 2021.
This is a unique opportunity to participate in a world renowned International Competition without leaving the comfort of your own home!!

We would also like to update you re BCA Examinations

Whilst the recent news from the Government is encouraging re the Covid 19 pandemic, the BCA Board of Administration have taken the decision NOT to try and hold any BCA Centres before the Autumn – they will reassess the situation in July with the view of hopefully publishing centre dates from possibly October. This will of course be dependent on further government directions.
In the meantime, Examinations will continue to be held online using Skype, Whatsapp, Zoom or any other application enabling the examination to be conducted.
Such Examinations can be arranged on an individual basis - please make entry and the College will be in contact directly to fix mutually convenient dates & time.
