Euro dress rehearsal...

Members of Elland Silver Youth Band enjoy a dress rehearsal blow before they head off to the European Youth Championships in a few weeks time.

  Members of Elland Silver Youth Band enjoy a quick outside blow...

With just a couple of weeks to go before they head off to represent England at the European Youth Championships in Montreux, members of the Elland Silver Youth Band in West Yorkshire, have a quick blow outside during a break in rehearsals.

The band will be conducted by Samantha Harrison as they look to reclaim the title they won in 2017, and were captured by photographer Lorne Campbell as they took a break from their weekend rehearsals.

4BR wants to ensure that the brass band movement remains vibrant and relevant. We also want to be able to question, challenge and critically examine those who run and play in it, producing high quality journalism that informs as well as entertains our readers.

So if like us you value a strong, independent perspective on the brass band world - then why not consider becoming a supporter and help make our future and that of a burgeoning brass band movement more secure.

So one less cappuccino then?
