A Suffolk band is hoping to be the toast of our region when it takes part in a prestigious national competition next month.

Castleton Brass, based in Eye and which has 28 members, will be competing in the finals of the National Brass Band Championships at Cheltenham Racecourse on September 17. The band is the current London and Southern Counties 4th Section regional champion.

Christine Wade, band chairman, said: 'We are really looking forward to it. This is the second year we've qualified. We will be against 19 other bands at the final.'

The band is looking to businesses or individuals to sponsor players going to the finals.
