We are a traditional British Brass Band 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 National Mineworkers' Open Brass Band Festival.
If you wish to book the band please send an email to Caroline Blackham - email@example.com or ring the Musical Director (Geof Benson) on 01623 616937.
