‘Over the weekend of the 7th to 9th July [2017], the inaugural BrassFestUK event was held. Over 130 brass bands across Great Britain performed to members of the public to show the country just how wonderful the sound of a brass band is. BrassFestUK was a project that set out to encourage as many brass bands as possible to head out to the local bandstand, park, market square, pub garden, or anywhere really, to go and perform to the public. Each band performed the commissioned piece for the event, “The Spirit of Brass”, which was composed by Gavin Somerset. More than 3,000 bandsmen and women played to an estimated audience in excess of 10,000 people over the 3 days.’ [Brass Band World] Held Early July [2018].

‘The Cotswold Edge Brass Festival was started in 2016 by four brass musicians from Gloucestershire. We lament the decline of brass music in schools and among young people and have set out to do something practical about it. We have a vision of brass playing flourishing in our area and that our young people develop a lifelong love of music through playing a brass instrument. The Cotswold Edge Brass Festival is about developing an environment that nurtures brass playing for the benefit of the local community.‘ The Brass Festival Weekend held Late June.

'So why is the UGF so special? Perhaps it’s the mix of music old and new, of electric and acoustic, of steel and nylon, of seasoned performers and those, like the students from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, just starting out on their careers. Perhaps it’s the location on Loch Broom and the drive up through some of Scotland’s most spectacular scenery. Perhaps it’s the informal air of the whole weekend: there’s no “us and them”, no VIP area. Everyone mingles, and you’re likely to find yourself sitting beside a guitar legend in the Festival Club – or even jamming with them on one of the trade stands ...' Held Early October.
