David Wilson Homes

Scargill Mann Ashbourne




A long established FREE event for the end of the Festival and sponsored this year by Scargill Mann & Co and David Wilson Homes.

We’ve booked the sunshine this year! So, bring your blanket, food, family and friends for a lovely afternoon in Ashbourne Park and listen to the sounds of Youth Brass 2000. This excellent band are winners of the Youth Brass National Championships in 2016 and already this year, winners of the British Open Youth title for the fifth year in a row. You can’t possibly miss hearing them, can you?

Youth Brass 2000

Youth Brass 2000 at the Sage Gateshead

An independent brass band for young people aged 19 and under. The band creates a love of music making within its players and brings out the very best each player can achieve, several former players have gone on to perform with “big name” bands and orchestras, and reflect warmly on their time with Youth Brass 2000. They are a very busy band, performing many concerts throughout the year, and participate in many contests. Last year they pulled off a “hat trick” of being crowned Champion Youth Band for 3 years in a row!


The band are delighted to have been invited to perform in Ashbourne and are very much looking forward to the event.
