‘I’m Burmington Bertie’ - 2015

    Well, despite the words from the old music hall song, this Bertie doesn’t - he turns up at two!

    Once again the boys and girls of Stour Concert Brass made their way just up the road to the charming Cotswold village of Burmington as star turn at the village’s annual fete, which turned out this year to be a little damp - rain did not stop play though a waterproof pergolas ensure the performance could go ahead. Pimms and Hot Dogs were the order of the day too, along with lots of summer fun.

He’s big, he’s pink and he’s back again this year - dear old Bertie!
