A cornet player from West Runton has been chosen to perform with the National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain.

Eighteen-year-old Gabriel Askew will attend a week-long Summer Course at Harrogate Ladies College which concludes with two spectacular end of course concerts at The Dolphin Centre in Darlington on Friday and Saturday, August 5 and 6.

The band exists to give exceptionally gifted young brass instrumentalists the opportunity to perform advanced music and receive the highest quality teaching.

Gabriel said: 'I'm thoroughly looking forward to it.'
