One of the unique aspects of BRASS, is that the festival reaches out into our communities, with loads of opportunities to get involved. Engaging with over 42,000 people in 2019, BRASS is just one of the festivals bringing unique cultural experiences to the communities of our County, demonstrating the local authority’s commitment to culture-led regeneration.
Brass in Schools
Each year the BRASS Festival works with around 15,000 children and young people through its community and education programmes. Schools love to welcome our bands, who play mini-gigs or engage the children in workshops. Some of the country’s best Street Bands will all be taking their skills to schools throughout Durham and sharing the BRASS-love with our young people.
We very much want BRASS to give something back to those who may have had a particularly tough few years. So, we are taking some of our performers to do special performances at care homes throughout the County. Performing outdoors, this is our way of bringing a little warmth and reminiscence to some of our older residents.
