In 2005 Carole launched the Bolsover Festival of Brass, a brass band entertainment contest which has grown in to one of the leading events of its kind in the world today.
The Festival of Brass attracts some 2,500 participating musicians and audience members each year. Since 2015, the contest has been live streamed on the Internet. This has seen the event reach a truly world-wide audience with viewers from dozens of countries tuning in to see the entertaining programmes put on by the bands.
The Bolsover International Brass Band Summer School concept grew as a result of Carole’s passion to support the brass band movement and its following.
Carole is now a freelance arts funding consultant, events organiser and manager.
