Brass International Festival

Durham City Centre

06.07.17 to 16.07.17

Throughout the week-long festival we will be showcasing Broadway and Venice, brassing-up some Northern Soul, plus the BBC Big Band will be honouring jazz trumpet legend Dizzy Gillespie.

Durham is the home of street brass and we will be sending our ever-popular international street bands to all four corners of County Durham to perform in all manner of parks, public spaces and schools. One of our main ambitions is to inspire a new generation of young brass players, by putting instruments directly into their hands – so look out for the Big BRASS Bus! In 2016 we performed for over 17,000 school children – this year we want to transform them into players!
