The non-contesting Watership Brass will be heading to Belgium later this year to restart their regular tours.

Watership Brass
  The band has been on a number of previous tours

Watership Brass is busy planning its 2024 summer tour to Belgium.

Following previous tours to Prague, Germany, Italy, South Africa and Canada, the non-competing band from Newbury will be performing in Ypres, Ostend and Poperinge over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

Excited

Musical Director, Mark Picken, told 4BR: "We're excited to be taking our 27 band members to Belgium for our first post-Covid tour."

The highlight of the short tour will be a joint concert in Ypres with the De Brasserie Brass Band, as part of a two day local music festival on Saturday 24th August.
