Boobs out for one last showing in Yorkshire

The fantastic Boobs & Brass is looking forward to their final appearance with Brighouse & Rastrick Band in Huddersfield later this month.

Boobs
  Boobs & Brass will link up for a final concert appearance with Brighouse & Rastrick

The countdown is on for the final 'Yorkshire' appearance of Boobs & Brass, who will be performing with National Champion Brighouse & Rastrick at Huddersfield Town Hall on Saturday 24th March.

Over the past few months the girls have been preparing themselves for their `Goodbye to Yorkshire` concert which will see 65 pink clad players perform for the very last time with one of their greatest brass band supporters.

One more time

Founder Margaret Betts told 4BR: "Since Boobs & Brass was formed in 2006, a very special relationship has been built between us and the girls are very grateful and feel honoured to be given the opportunity to be able to perform together one more time."

Although it hasn't been possible to ask every 'Boobie' to be part of this unique event, each of the Band's three groups will be represented, with girls travelling from all over the UK, including one very special member who is currently undergoing chemotherapy."

Bucket list

Margaret added: "She was so pleased to be part of the concert as she later told us that it was on her personal 'bucket-list'. It's great that this will give her the opportunity for what will be a memorable occasion."

Boobs & Brass has to date raised over £230,000 for charity with 85% going to breast cancer research and the remainder to other causes.
