Some of the best brass bands in the country will gather in the North East of England this November for a special event at Sage Gateshead.

The popular ‘Brass in Concert’ festival is an annual event featuring some of the UK’s most talented brass musicians across the generations.

The festival, which takes place on Saturday 20 November, will consist of a contest for leading UK brass bands as well as a separate concert showcasing the best of the country's young brass musicians.

Proceedings will get underway at 9.00am with five competitors in Youth Brass in Concert, an event that has grown in popularity since it was introduced in 2018.

Throughout the remainder of the day, ten bands will compete in the Brass in Concert Championship, each performing their own 23-minute programme of music. Competing bands include the world leading Cory Band, the renowned Brighouse and Rastrick Band, and the world famous Grimethorpe Colliery Band.

Results of the contest will be announced at the end of the day by well-known broadcaster and conductor Frank Renton, a legendary figure within the brass banding tradition.
