Brass in the Blooms: Blackwell Concert Band

The bulbs are blooming, the birds are singing and the trumpets ring out across our lawn.

Throughout August, Birmingham Botanical Gardens present ‘Brass in the Blooms‘ a series of concert bands from across the country for your enjoyment.

No extra tickets needed – all included with your entry.

Next to our glorious Bandstand – the Blackwell Concert Band.

The band was formed in 1998 when woodwind were invited into the Blackwell Brass Band to encourage further growth. Since these humble beginnings it has gone on to reach its current strength of around 70 players.

There are a wide range of players in the band of varying experience and calibre. The repertoire includes marches, jazz, calypso, blues, pop, rock, film scores and more.
