The event is delivered in partnership with Brass Bands England (BBE) and aims to provide an opportunity for bands to perform marches within their repertoire, as well as showcase their summer programmes in a space where audiences can sit and enjoy the music.

There will be food and drink available throughout the day with bands playing alongside the giant sandpit.
