Brass Band back and raring to go

We're back. That's the message from local brass band Bay Brass.

Under strict Covid guidelines and the musical direction of Alan Willmott of Paignton they had their first full rehearsal for 15 months outside their normal rehearsal venue at St Andrews Methodist Church in Shiphay, Torquay.

Rehearsals are continuing every Wednesday at 7pm outside until the next relaxation of guidelines when a return to inside the church is planned. The aim is to also take up their usual summer residency playing to the public in Princess Gardens during July and August and on Wednesday evenings - weather permitting.
Bay Brass can be found during December at many venues playing carols. As restrictions lift further plans are in place to continue teaching beginners and forming a training band.  If you are brass player and fancy joining please contact Jackie  Payne on 07788 466800 or John Sherlock on 07811 476973.
