On Wednesday, September 7, Wellington Brass will rehearse in the world-famous band club before assembling in the car park at 6pm for their mini march.

They will process at 6.30pm down to the village green for a short performance, which will be adjudicated by world famous Dobcross whistler David Morris.

Then Wellington Brass will perform in concert at the band club from 7pm-8.30pm, led by conductor David Bremner. All are welcome to the free event.
