Happy New Year!🎉 We thought we'd start the year with one of our favourite memories from 2023 - WCB's annual minitour is a highlight of our band calendar and last year, we visited thCrich Tramway Villageay Village and the delightful riverside bandstand in Stratford-Upon-Avon. After performing on the charming Victoria Bandstand at Crich, the whole band enjoyed a ride on one of the vintage trams and we decided that it would be fun to make some music too! It might be a tiny bit rough around the edges (we were sight-reading!) but how often do you get to hear a brass quintet on top of an open-top tram?! Rothea Rag seemed like the perfect accompaniment...here's a brand new video (can you spot the perfectly-timed tram bell...?!) ... See MoreSee Less
