The East Anglian Brass Band Association will be presenting a day of entertainment for lovers of brass bands at St Andrew’s Hall in Norwich on Sunday, May 10.

Commencing at 11am, seven East Anglian brass bands will be competing for the title of The Champion Band of East Anglia. Each band will perform a twenty-five minute concert, with different programmes including music to suit all tastes. Admission costs £5.

Then in the evening the association welcomes the famous Leyland Band, who are currently ranked 13th in the world, and will be performing at the same venue. For over sixty years the Leyland Band has been performing quality entertainment across the country and abroad. They have won the Brass In Concert Championships five times which reinforces the band’s first class reputation on the concert platform. The band’s repertoire is extensive and broad to appeal to all tastes. The concert starts at 6.30pm and tickets costing £14, £16 and £18 are now on sale.

Tickets for both the contest and a West Gallery or Centre Aisle seat for the Leyland concert are available for a discounted price of £20.
