The day is open to brass players only with the charge for the day at £10 (adults), £5 (under 16s) and £20 (family rate)

Beulah Band spokesperson Mary Wallace told 4BR: "We are thrilled to once again welcome the Foden's stars to our training day following the success of a previous visit by them a couple of years ago. It promises to be a fantastic event and one that will have huge benefits for everyone that attends."
