Ronnie Corbett OBE


Alder Valley Brass was very sad to hear of the passing of their President Ronnie Corbett OBE today. A man of great charm and warmth who brought laughter and joy to millions.

He was quite simply one of the true greats of British comedy.


Ronnie Corbett became President of Alder Valley Brass in 2010 following their performances on the TV series 'The Two Ronnies’.


Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this difficult time.”
