Bands spread Olympic spirit

Have your say

VILLAGE bands are on a mission to spread the Olympic spirit in Sheffield.

Stannington Brass Band and Stannington Training Band will perform for people in the city on July 24 as part of a project inspired by London 2012.

The event has been organised for Brass the Baton, a Cultural Olympiad project being produced by the British Federation of Brass Bands. All bands taking part will perform a specially-commissioned composition called Going the Distance.

The training band will perform a version of the piece at a concert showcasing young musical talent at Knowle Top Methodist Church, Stannington starting at 3.30 pm.

The adults will take to the stage at High Riggs Nursery, Stannington, at 7pm. Tickets cost £7. For more information call 0114 2301873.
