Paul Beaumont, president of B&R, said: “We would like to thank Severn Unival for kindly providing funding towards the cost of staging this major concert. The now famous ladies from the Boobs and Brass band combined with the world-class performers from B&R always provide an entertaining evening and this will be a concert not to miss;.

“We also hope to raise a considerable amount of money for Breast Cancer charities on the night as well.”

This will be the fourth concert that the two bands have appeared together over a period of six years, said Mr Beaumont.
