Mayor’s fanfare to help city’s homeless

If music be the food of love, play on! Now is the chance to woo your loved one with an early Valentine’s treat when Worcester Concert Brass takes centre stage in aid of the Mayor’s charities.

Worcester’s Mayor Councillor Roger Berry is hosting this popular annual brass band concert in the Assembly Room at the Guildhall, on Friday 8 February at 7.30pm.

The programme will include popular tunes from Stage, TV and film and will feature several of the bands talented soloists.

“I am a real music lover; we have such a fantastic wealth of talented ensembles in the city and I can’t wait to hear the Worcester Concert Brass in action. Their performances are always outstanding and thoroughly enjoyable and fun,” said the Mayor.

David Cottee, Worcester Concert Brass Bookings Secretary, said:

“Worcester Concert Brass are once again pleased to be able to support the Mayor’s nominated charities. Traditionally the post of Mayor has enjoyed strong links with  the band with the Mayor in office acting as band president, and as Worcester’s Brass Band we remain committed to providing entertaining music to as wide an audience as possible.”

The 26-piece band, which performs at a number of major events in the city and surrounding areas, has appeared at this annual event to raise money for the Mayor’s charities over 12 times.

This year the proceeds will go to two local charities which help the homeless in Worcester:  St. Paul’s Hostel and Maggs Day Centre.

The concert will last for about two hours, including an interval when tea/coffee and biscuits will be available.

Tickets – including light refreshments – cost £6 in advance and £8 on the door. They are available from the Worcester Tourist Information Centre at the Guildhall, the Mayor’s Office on 01905 722001, or through the band on 01684 294003.
