November Spotlight – Competition to name our mascot!

After a bit of a break, we’re back on the Brass Roots Trail…

The band were busy over the Royston Arts Festival weekend and during our Brass Roots coffee morning we were reunited with some old friends.

Maureen and Nigel Butler popped by and donated the band’s mascot to the Brass Roots project. Maureen made the bear and its uniform for the band in the 80s and he accompanied us on stage and behind the scenes for a number of years. After being injured in action the bear was repaired and retired to a peaceful life at Maureen’s house, but now he is back!

Do you remember the band’s mascot? Do you have any photos of him in action that you can share?

As part of our Brass Roots project we are running a competition to name the mascot, which we will announce at our annual Christmas Town Hall concert.

To take part, email your name suggestion to or go to the band’s Facebook page. To find out if your name has been picked, come along to enjoy a programme of festive music and sing along carols at the Town Hall on Sunday 16th December at 7pm.
