situated in the beautiful countryside of
Nottinghamshire between Worksop and Mansfield.
We are very friendly and welcome new players
to our rehearsals. Our venues range from
summer fetes, park bandstands and galas,
to weddings. We also perform in
more formal concerts and have good links
with the local community.We also may be able
to provide free tuition for anyone wishing
to learn to play a brass instrument (See
Training Band Link).
We have an excellent reputation for performing
at a high standard and came 6th in the 2011
