BAKEWELL: Brass in the Park raises £500 for charities

On a gorgeous evening in the middle of carnival week, Bakewell, Cressbrook and Tideswell bands joined forces to entertain a delightful audience of 300+ people.

The event was entitled “Brass in the Park”, organised by the Rotary Club of Bakewell as part of Bakewell Carnival in July.

Cressbrook started the evening, followed by Bakewell and Tideswell performing individually before a fantastic finale featuring the massed bands was enhanced by spontaneous dancing from the audience.

As well as adding a different event to carnival week, “Brass in the Park” demonstrated the talent of local bands and raised over £500 for local Rotary charities.

Rtn Mike Fowler said: “This was a fantastic evening and both the Rotary Club and the bands want to repeat it next year.”
