Wem Jubilee Band have reason to blow their own trumpet after a successful weekend at the Wychavon Festival of Brass.

The annual festival, held in Evesham, saw the band not only awarded with first prize in the fourth section, but the baritone and percussion team were both awarded trophies for their outstanding performances.

A spokesperson from Wem Jubilee Band said: “It’s an absolute delight that we were awarded first prize and that our baritone and percussion team were also recognised.

“This is a fabulous start to our busy season, which will continue with leading the Remembrance Parade on Sunday in Wem.”

The Jubilee Band is also hosting its own concert on Saturday, November 17 at 2pm titled An Afternoon of Remembrance.

The concert takes place in the Church of St Peter and Paul in Wem.
