So, Sheffield, we need to be extremely proud of our local brass band The Oughtibridge Brass Band who’ve been invited to take part again in the national competition in Cheltenham. Last year they came 6th and this year they are going to smash it.
There’s just one problem, it costs £8k to get the band there and back, find hotels and have a day bringing it all together and having a practice so that they can really knock it out of the hall. They are completely self-funded and just don’t have the money to do this at the moment, as they spent the majority of their reserves attending the nationals in 2022 and some posh new uniform garb, to really cut a dash for the judges.
The band were formed in 1890, which makes them just 133 years old and they have an extremely vibrant youth band where experienced players teach the future of this iconic, important part of our culture here in Sheffield.
We’re asking Sheffield to get behind this, help where we can and drop some cash in their live GoFundMe (…/oughtibridge-brass-band-get…) to help with getting our Sheffield band to the finals.
There are also live performances during The Big Brass’tards BoozersTour of Kelham Island and City Centre on Saturday 2nd of September taking place in many of our favourite pubs. Timings are as follows:
The Dorothy Pax 8.30PM
Shakespeares 7.30PM
Kelham Island Tavern 6.30PM
The Harlequin 5.30PM
The Gardeners Rest 4.30PM
Alder 3.30PM
Riverside Kelham 2PM
Orchard Square 12.30PM
Triple Point Brewery + Bar 11AM
We’re asking the good people of Sheffield to buy a drink, enjoy some amazing music and support our band. Why not join, follow them from amazing venue to venue and give ’em to help get them to the nationals?
