About the Event

Northampton Concert Band was formed in 1919 by a group of ex-servicemen who wanted to continue their musical interests in civilian life. They were originally called the Northamptonshire Comrades of the Great War and also known as the Merry Comrades Band.

In 1976, the name was changed to the Northampton Concert Band to reflect the increase in membership of younger musicians and the wider repertoire of music played.

Today, the band is stronger than ever with more than 50 members under the baton of director Graham Tear.

The Brixworth Festival Choir comprises just over 20 singers who come together especially to perform at the Festival.

Admission by Festival Pass £28 or individual event tickets £12.50.  Under 16s free when accompanied by an adult.
