'The Wychavon Festival of Brass was the result of an initiative developed by the Vale of Evesham Commerce and Tourism Association which, in the late 80’s, was seeking to raise the profile of the town. An exciting brass band contest was seen as an interesting and novel way of attracting visitors and offering the local population the opportunity to hear and experience some fabulous brass music!' Held Late October.

'"Bret" Band are the only surviving village band in Worcestershire. The earliest mention in public records which the band has found, is one in September of 1895 where reference is made in the Evesham Journal to an event to raise funds for the newly-formed band. Further research has revealed that the band was formed sometime between the autumn of 1894 and the summer of 1895. The band evolved from a Band of Hope based on a chapel in the village and when first formed it was known as the Bretforton Temperance Band (there’s no answer to that!) Some years ago the band was fortunate enough to purchase this chapel and now it is here that they meet to practice ...' ALERT Could not open the Band’s Website when Reviewed; cited their Facebook Page instead.

‘The Band, now styled on Military Band instrumentation, was originally founded by a small nucleus of 7 or 8 young musicians in February 1992, following the demise of the Evesham Sea Cadet Corps Band. The number of members achieving good results for examinations set by the Royal Schools of Music has resulted in the Band rapidly gaining recognition as a successful training ground for young musicians and aspiring adults within the Vale of Evesham.’

Has mounted choral concerts since its inception in 1975, but ‘with major public concerts ever more expensive to mount, and funding support difficult to obtain ... since 2014 the organisation has organised a new kind of “choral workshop” twice a year, where singers are expected to do some preparation in advance, but the emphasis is on high quality singing and fun’.

‘Has established a reputation as one of the region's leading early music singing groups ... We are based in Evesham, Worcestershire (in the UK) and our members come from the Vale of Evesham and the surrounding area. Usually, but not always, we sing in colourful 17th century costumes ... We are equally happy to sing in churches, village halls, outdoors or indoors and enjoy this variety of venues. Our repertoire is varied and, as well as music from the 16th and 17th centuries, we sing contemporary works.’

‘A thriving amateur mixed choir of about 100 voices ... Our concerts, usually three each year, are performed in Pershore Abbey ... a superb venue with acoustics which are ideal for a chorus of our size. We work with a number of professional orchestras and soloists who join us from all over the country ... There are no formal auditions although you may be expected to attend a simple voice test.’

‘Takes its name from the beautiful Vale of Evesham, where we are based, in Worcestershire. Vale Connection Ladies Barbershop Chorus (as we were originally known) was started in Evesham back in 1994 by a small but perfectly formed group of just ten ladies who shared a passion for singing in harmony. Today we're still singing - and still growing! We sing unaccompanied A Cappella style and most of our songs are arranged in the kind of close, four-part harmony that gets toes tapping and spines tingling.’
