BRASS is back in 2015 with a fantastic programme of brass-inspired events coming to Durham from 16-19 July!

We’re delighted to announce our full line-up for this year’s festival which includes Fun Lovin’ CriminalsCory Band and Tredegar Town Band and Benny Goodman & Glenn Miller at Carnegie Hall 1939.

This year’s festival will get a little BRASSical with the introduction of classical events across Durham which are inspired by brass music – performances include Dunedin Consort performing Monteverdi’s Vespers, Grand Tour and Buccaneer by His Majesty’s Sagbutts and Cornetts, and Red Note Ensemble’s Sounding Brass.

We’ve also got an exciting new event for 2015 hosted by BBC 6Music DJ Steve Lamacq in Alternative BRASS  which will see live performances from nine fantastic bands at Gala, and Hope and Social and New York Brass Band headline our Big BRASS Bash tour which brings outdoor extravaganzas to Consett, Shildon, Trimdon Village, Seaham and Spennymoor.

Our festival wouldn’t be the same without family favourite Streets of BRASS, and our street bands will be back to bring the party atmosphere to Durham City on Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 July.

Tickets for all these events are available now through our website, by calling the Gala Theatre on 03000 266 600 or in person at the venue.
