Cllr Elizabeth Scott of Durham County Council said: "We are now just a matter of days away from this year’s Durham Brass Festival and we are so excited to be doing it all again.

"We’ve got an amazing line-up with Public Service Broadcasting teaming up with County Durham’s own NASUWT Riverside Band for a performance inspired by coal mining, 40 years on from the strikes, within our World Heritage Site at Durham Cathedral.

"We also hope businesses and our economy will benefit from the numbers of people Brass brings into our city, and towns and villages over the course of the week."
