BRASS THE BATON: An Olympic-themed event featuring Weston Brass will be held in Grove Park on Sunday.

The Brass the Baton event is part of the nationwide Cultural Olympiad Project which will see five batons – one for each of the Olympic rings – carried around the country.

The musical event will start at 3pm, and will feature performances from Weston Brass, before the baton is brought into the park at about 4.45pm by the Weston Spirals baton-twirling troop.

The band will play a specially-written piece of music called Going The Distance, before the baton exits the park.
