Hold very tight please

Brass bands clearly have something in common with brass monkeys – an aversion to low temperatures. So it was last Sunday we found ourselves stomping our feet to keep warm and wearing more than the usual number of layers at Aldridge Transport Museum in Aldridge.

Great Barr Brass performed two sets of traditional carols, Christmas songs, and a selection of Christmas hit records (Cliff, Noddy, Mariah – we mean you!)

If you haven’t been to Aldridge Transport Museum (the former Aston Manor Road Transport Museum) then you’ve missed a treat. I understand they’re about to enter their winter shut-down but keep your eyes out for events and entertainments there. Hopefully the next time we see them it’ll be warm enough to take my jacket off.
