Youth development

Blewbury Youth Brass is one of four bands run by Blewbury Band near Didcot, with the organisation committed to helping develop the next generation of young players through their Beginner, Leaner and Youth Bands.

The Youth band was formed in August last year, and has already attracted young players from across the county.

The band is really looking forward to the tour, and at each rehearsal, things have been getting better and betterMD, Judith Atkins

Working hard

A spokesperson told 4BR: "We've been working hard and have undertaken two-day holiday rehearsals in preparation for the tour.

We've also selected an exciting programme including bandstand favourites, marches, show tunes, pop songs and solos, so there will be something for everyone to enjoy."

MD Judith Atkins added: "The band is really looking forward to the tour, and at each rehearsal, things have been getting better and better.

We are lucky to have attracted players from Cholsey, Yarnton, Abbey Brass and Wantage. We even have one young player from Norfolk who has travelled down to play with us."

On their return the band will also give a concert for local supporters to enjoy at Didcot Civic Hall on Wednesday 30th August.
