SOME of the top brass performers in the country delighted music fans at the weekend.
The 14th annual Festival of Brass impressed the crowds in Brighouse yesterday.
Twenty-six bands hailing from Huddersfield and Calderdale as well as from Cheshire, the Midlands, Lancashire and Lancashire and North Wales, took part.
Spectators took advantage of the fine weather to gather around Thornton Square to watch the performers. The contest was organised by the Brighouse Lions.
Adjudicators were Alan Morrison, Jappie Dijkstra and Dennis Wilby.
The event followed a Gala Contest on Saturday evening at the town’s Central Methodist Church.
It featured the popular Boobs and Brass all-ladies band, who also marched yesterday to collect money for their breast cancer charity.
