Can you help for a carol or two?

The UniBrass Foundation is looking for some carol playing help to boost the funds for the 2019 UniBrass Championships.

Christmas
  The UniBrass Foundation is looking for some festival carol playing help

The UniBrass Foundation is looking for some student help this festive period to help with fund-raising carol playing for the 2019 UniBrass Championships.

The event will welcome over 20 competing bands, with hundreds of students making their way to Bangor University to enjoy what should be a memorable contest weekend.

Carol playing stint

Spokesperson Alex Parker told 4BR: "Putting on such an event is expensive, so to help keep the costs down for students the UniBrass Foundation Trustees will be doing their annual charity Christmas caroling stint in Sheffield this year.

We do need help — and in particular we need some cornets, although all instruments are welcome.

Even non-players are welcome to join us as bucket-shakers and general moral boosters! Anyone is welcome to join in the fun!"

Can you help

If you are able to help at any or part of any of the following slots please contact UniBrass Trustee Alex Parker on or 07803 147 101

Support us for less than a cup of coffee...

4BR wants to ensure that the brass band movement remains vibrant and relevant. We also want to be able to question, challenge and critically examine those who run and play in it, producing high quality journalism that informs as well as entertains our readers.

So if like us you value a strong, independent perspective on the brass band world - then why not consider becoming a supporter and help make our future and that of a burgeoning brass band movement more secure.

So one less cappuccino then?
