IT wouldn’t be Christmas without a choir and brass band belting out all the festive classics.
So make sure you head down to Brass on the Grass in Claisebrook Cove tomorrow (Sunday December 11).
Held in Victoria Gardens from 3pm-8pm, the free family event includes performances by the WA Brass Band, Olman Walley, Junkadelic Brass Band, Highgate Primary School Choir, East Perth Community Group Choir, Daniel Jennis and Steve Hensby.
They’ll also be a parade from Matagarup Bridge, roving little Miss Squeezebox, raffles supporting the nearby homeless shelter St Bartholomew’s House, food/drink stalls, face painting, and of course, Santa Claus and his little helpers.
Held in East Perth for more than a decade, the annual Brass on the Grass has become a yuletide favourite with locals.
“I cannot thank enough all the kind people who have volunteered their time to help organise this event,” says East Perth Community Group chair Raj Doshi.
“Local businesses who have generously donated prizes, those who have offered a helping hand and a really special acknowledgment of those unsung heroes who will be working tirelessly in front and behind the scenes on the day, to make this our best ever end-of-year celebration.
“In doing so, you have demonstrated the very essence of community.
“Brass on the Grass is a recognition of East Perth, our neighbours, our friends and family. An opportunity to raise money for charity and join together in celebrating the joy of Christmas as only 6004 can.”
