Pershore Midsummer Brass is an annual one day Brass Band Festival which takes place on the first Saturday in July.
Starting at 10am with a specially commissioned Fanfare the day involves 30 brass bands performing for 12 hours in three venues.
The bands come from as far afield as Southampton, the Forest of Dean and the whole of the Midlands from Staffordshire to Gloucestershire and range from training and youth bands through to top class first section and championships bands with world rankings.
For the modest sum of £10 you can listen in the calm of the gardens at The Angel or The Star, both of which are by the gentle River Avon and both have the hospitality you would expect with a full bar and food available throughout the day.
A free programme can be heard at Chapman Court, outside Asda which often has more of a 'fun' atmosphere.
Tickets are available from
BLUE Ladies Fashions, Broad Street, Pershore.
Pershore Eyecare Centre, Bridge Street, Pershore,

Have you enjoyed reading about us, or attending past events? These can only happen with the support of volunteers. There is a very small committee who run Pershore Midsummer Brass and we need you!! Can you spare 2 hours or more to help 'On The Day' by selling tickets and programmes or stewarding at one of the venues? Perhaps you could be one of our venue Performance Managers?
We also need help before on the Friday afternoon to set up the venues but also on the Sunday morning to take everything down and put back into storage - mentioning which, do you have a small watertight space, close to Pershore, you might consider lending to us in which to store our equipment? It needs to be secure with 24/7 access and capable of storing chairs, marquees, signage, ticket booths, lighting and PA equipment.
Perhaps you feel you could contribute as a committee member? We need positive people who are prepared to be of practical help in putting together the events. Hard work and the major planning for July happens from January at our monthly meetings in Pershore.
If you can help us in any way please complete the form on the Contact page. Thank you in advance!!
