The band very much enjoyed playing at the Wychavon Festival of Brass last weekend in Evesham. B&D drew last out of a strong field of 20 bands and were pleased with their result of 6th place. Our set was based around the NHS starting with Legacy a test piece written celebrating the life and achievements of Welsh politician Aneurin Bevan and the 70th Anniversary of the British National Health Service. This was followed by a great version of A Little Help from Your Friends, Anne our star flugel player played exceptionally well in her solo Over The Rainbow. The program ended with the fantastic Nightingale Dances.
