Darley Dale Band

Latest News

Thank you to all our families and friends who have supported us during 2017 – and to those who generously gave us money when we have been carolling.   It all helps to buy music and uniforms, buy and repair instruments and pay the other expenses of running a brass band.  And happy new year to everyone from Darley Dale Band.



Our programme in 2017 has included two concerts in a new venue – the Edgefold Club in Matlock – a garden party at historic Snitterton Hall, a Sunday evening concert in Darley Dale and Sunday afternoons in Hall Leys, Matlock and in the attractive River Gardens at Belper. We are looking forward to entertaining the people of Derbyshire again in 2018 and to meeting you, wherever we perform – and, if you would like to engage us, please use the “Contact Us” tab to get in touch.
