  Brass Bands England is looking for festive images...

Brass Bands England is once again running its #spottedcarolling campaign.

They would like bands and ensembles to send in pictures from all the different places in which they find themselves spreading festive cheer — whether it's sitting in Santa's sleigh in the local high street to performing on the stage of a major concert hall — or anything in between!

Create a record

BBE wants to create a record of all the things bands are doing to make the Christmas season extra special for the public nationwide.

Using the #spottedcarolling, please send your pictures to us BBE through their Facebook page, or you can also use twitter or email at alex@bbe.org.uk and we will tweet them for you.

BBE Partnership & Development Manager, Alex Parker told 4BR: "Christmas is always a special time for our member bands and we're delighted to be able to help them spread their message in this way.

We look forward to seeing the multitude of ways they have festive fun and hope that as many of our members as possible get into the Christmas spirit!"
