A BRASS band is warming up for a spring concert with a twist.

Stamford Brass will hold its annual spring event at the Stamford Arts Centre on Friday next week.

The band often tries to add something unusual to its shows and this year they have enlisted the help of an actor to add a poetic flavour to the concert.

The actor, to be revealed on the night, will read poems at various points in the evening with the backing of the full brass band. More traditional pieces will also be played.

The show starts at 7.30pm and costs £10 (£8 concessions). Tickets can be bought online or in person from the Stamford Arts Centre box office or by calling 01780 763203.
