Music at the National Waterways Museum

The newly formed Ellesmere Port Concert Brass are set to bring their unique modern brass sounds to the National WaterwaysMuseum on Sunday 29 September 2013.

The band specialises in performing brass arrangements of modern tunes and boasts a varied membership with an age range from six to 70.

Weather permitting, the concert will be held outside in the museum’s picnic area but in the event of poor weather, the concert will be held in the Tom Rolt Conference Centre. The performance will start at 3pm and finish at 4.30pm. Tickets cost £6.50 per adult, £4.50 per child and £5.50 for concessions. Along with your ticket you'll get an annual pass to the museum, giving you access whenever you want for the next 12 months.

Great musical event

John Inch, general manager at the National Waterways Museum, said: “We are delighted that the museum and the band have joined forces to stage this great musical event for the Ellesmere Port community. We hope it will encourage the music lovers in the community to discover the world of waterways which might otherwise have remained a mystery to them.”Musical Director, Eddie Pickering says: “The members look forward to welcoming the general public, friends and family to come and enjoy the concert during a time of ongoing growth of the brass band genre. The band enjoys a healthy following and its increased popularity within the community suggests a bright future but as always, we are looking for additional support and most of all, new members to ensure the band’s longevity.”
