Femmes Fortissimo, an all-women brass band due to take part in the York International Women’s Week 2020 programme, is postponing its concert which was due to take place in York on 28 March.

“It’s the right thing to do – more and more concerts are going the same way, sadly, and we don’t want to put audience or players’ health at risk,” said the band’s founder, Kate Lock.

“We’re looking at an alternative date later in the year, probably Sat 17th October.

“Anyone that has bought a ticket in advance will receive a refund.”
