The 2020 Pershore Midsummer Brass event has been hailed a great success.

The brass band festival went online this year due to coronavirus restrictions and featured virtual performances by some of the bands which were scheduled to perform at the event this year.

In a statement, organisers said: “All the bands had worked hard to gather what was required by the organisers within a tight deadline. Some fun videos from bands were recorded under lockdown conditions, where we could spot the matching wallpaper of brass-banding families.”

They continued: “As hoped, this method of sharing Pershore Midsummer Brass reached many of those who would normally come to Pershore, as well as being shared with new listeners. We had an incredible total of 5,287 views over the whole weekend and many positive comments from bands and spectators alike. Despite the difficult conditions, the event was a great success.”

Next year’s Pershore Midsummer Brass is scheduled to take place on 3 July
