Wychavon Festival of Brass

The Wychavon Festival of Brass is a contest for Brass Bands in the midlands. The contest, now in it’s 20th year, alternates annually between Droitwich, Evesham and Pershore. This year 50 bands took part and £7000 was handed out in prize money. I was invited to present the prizes in the championship section ( results below ) and this was held at Droitwich High School, which has a fabulous theatre. Other venues were Norbury Theatre and the Community Centre, both in Droitwich. Other presentations were made by the mayors from Evesham Pershore and Droitwich.
The organisation that goes into this festival is quite amazing. All the helpers give their time free and without these people this important festival would not take place. I am pleased to say also that all three town councils and WDC give grants to help with funding.
