‘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.

'Sings unusual carols in The Prince Albert, Rodborough, every Sunday lunchtime in December leading up to the 25th ... Some among us are knowledgeable English music singers and instrumentalists and they talked of the surviving traditions of village carols in Yorkshire, especially around Sheffield, and parts of N.
