The City of Birmingham Brass Band performed at St Augustine's Church, Edgbaston on the evening of the 10th of December. The performance was in aid of the church lighting fund.
An appreciative audience enjoyed the music, mainly Christmas themed, as well as the wit of the conductor and director Warren Belshaw. There was an opportunity for the audience to sing along to carols and to participate actively during the song "The Twelve Days of Christmas".
During the interval, hot drinks, wines and cakes were available and a raffle was held to boost the fund.
This was a very enjoyable and intimate evening, with much fun and banter between Warren and the audience.
