BURNHAM and Highbridge Band and Weston Brass will be joining forces for a charity concert in aid of Weston Hospicecare.

The event will be held at the Princess Theatre in Burnham-on-Sea on May 21.

This will be the first time that these two groups will have played together.

Burnham and Highbridge Band won a gold medal in the Highbridge Music Festival in February and Weston Brass headed to the West of England regional final of the National Brass Band Championship in March.

Burnham and Highbridge have also been selected to open the Pyramid Stage on the Sunday of this year's Glastonbury Festival.

Tickets are available from the Princess Theatre box office on 01278 784464 at £9 for adults and £7 for concessions.

The net proceeds are all being donated to Weston Hospicecare.
