As well as his involvement with Foden's he has a strong passion for brass bands and since 2006 has also been Artistic Director of the National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain. All at Foden's class Bramwell as a close friend and on behalf of the banding movement send our best wishes for a full and speedy recovery.'
