Fresh attends the Midlands Area Brass Band Championships!

For the first time ever, a local radio station attended the event at Bedworth Civic Hall on Saturday the 10th and Sunday the 11th of March.

As a radio station, it's our duty to raise awareness of valuable local events that are happening in our community. Little over 6 months ago, we were made aware of this event that was happening in Bedworth. The event had never received full coverage from a radio station, so we decided to change that. We spent the whole weekend broadcasting completely live for the event, gathering interviews from the bands taking part and providing coverage for eager locals that couldn't attend the event on the day. You can view the material we collected below. 

Ryan Watkins - British Bandsman 

Jeff - Rolls Royce (Derby) Band

Oli & Adrian - Stourport-on-Severn

Ken Ewer - Daventry 

Ian Taylor - Ireland Colliery Chesterfield
