The concert is in aid of University Hospitals Birmingham Charity and you will have an opportunity to donate to this wonderful cause during the concert which will be presented live on Facebook and Youtube – just search for Bournville Parish Church. All are welcome to join us in this celebration of Christmas.
Yesterday there was a real Christmas spirit in the air as we performed at two events and were joined by old and new friends.
At the Bournville Gardens Christmas Fayre we had a great time entertaining the resident’s, friends and family.
This was followed by our evening concert with Bournville-Vocal-Ease Ladies Choir, St Francis Children’s Choir and Bournville Bell Choir. The event was a great success and everyone put on a fantastic performance to a packed St Francis Church.
A huge thank you to all of our friends from bands around the Midlands who helped us out at Bournville Church concert. Unfortunately some of our band member were unwell and we were grateful for the last minute support from other players (both old and new faces). That’s the spirit of Christmas and brass banding!
We’ve still got some gigs this festive season, see our events calendar for more dates!

With a mixed programme of traditional Christmas carols, and lively festive pieces, this promises to be an entertaining evening for all.

Silver Sunday is a special day in the national calendar when everyone can come together to celebrate older people.
We played our part by entertaining the residents of Bournville Gardens Retirement Village. A programme of entertainment pieces and Proms favourites had the audience on their feet, waving their flag and singing along.
Thank you for having us and we look forward to returning in December with some Christmas classics.
