Exmouth Brass Band Festival, Saturday 5th September 2015
The 16th Exmouth Brass Band Festival, promoted and
organised by the South West Brass Band Association,
has attracted member
bands from Cornwall, Devon and Somerset with around 500 bandsmen
descending on Exmouth for the day.
Each band will compete in the Exmouth Pavilion
for the “Exmouth Town Council Challenge Trophy“, presenting a 25-minute
programme of own-choice music to the Adjudicator, Alan Fernie from Selkirk,
Scotland. Additionally, throughout the day,
the same bands will entertain the
general public with 30-minute concerts in the adjacent Pavilion Gardens.
This is a day to be enjoyed by all, bands and public alike, and an
opportunity for our bands to demonstrate the best in brass banding
here in the
South West. The day’s events commence at 10.30am concluding with the
results and presentation ceremony at around
6.30pm when the Deputy Mayor of
Exmouth, Councillor Brian Cole, will present the trophies to the winning bands.
