BBE supports Doncaster brass band focus

A Brass Bands England led initiative could see brass bands play a more prominent role in the artistic life of Doncaster.

Doncaster
  Four local bands visited Doncaster to find out more about what artistic possibilities may lie ahead.

Following an invitation from the local tourism team, four Doncaster bands recently enjoyed a tour of new, not so new, and very different venues in their home town.

As part of the continued rejuvenation of Doncaster Town Centre, Richard Young of 'Visit Doncaster' led the bands to the Corn Exchange, The Little Theatre, Cast Theatre and a secret auditorium which is connected to the town's rich history of horse racing.

Brass focus

The tour, co-ordinated by Brass Bands England and 'Visit Doncaster', hopes to initiate a series of brass-focused events to be hosted in the town in celebration of the historic links between brass and coal and in anticipation of strengthened promotion of local brass bands.
