Buxton Festival of Brass returns

The popular North West Area Brass Band Association contest returns this weekend.

Buxton
  The contest takes place in the wonderful surrounding of Buxton

The organisers of the Buxton Festival of Brass have announced the line-up of competing bands that will take to the stage at the event on Sunday 15th May.
