Silverware attractions on show at Bolsover

There was a special treat for delegates on the Bolsover International Brass Band Summer School — with the opportunity to get up close to some iconic trophies.

There have already been a number of different musical treats for the delegates on the Bolsover International Brass Band Summer School to enjoy so far this week — and not just with the weather either.

Sparkling in the sunshine at the Heritage High School in Clowne was an incredible collection of brass band silverware — with delegates having the unique opportunity to have their pictures taken with them

Generosity

Thanks to the generosity of Foden's and Cory, delegates were able to pose next to the European, National Championship, British Open, Brass in Concert and UK Band of the Year trophies and perhaps dream that one day they could be part of a band that wins them too.

Course Director Steven Mead told 4BR: "Our thanks go to Foden's and Cory for such a wonderful act of generosity and insurance faith!

It's quite a collection — and the delegates were thrilled to be able to get up close to these iconic trophies and get their picture taken with them."

Added extra

He added: "It's another little added extra we have brought to the course this year — one that has already proved that it has worldwide appeal with players coming from as far afield as Belgium, Netherlands, Sweden and Australia.

Everyone has been working hard towards our joint goals with the free Gala Concert already on the horizon on Friday."
