Darley Dale Band

Latest News

A happy new year to all our readers… and thank you for your support during 2018.

Thank you also for the money you have thrown into our buckets when we have been carolling.  It all helps to pay for music, room hire, instrument repairs and insurance and the other expenses of keeping a  band going.

We’ll be back to entertain you in 2019.


We already have some engagements in the diary for 2019, including a return to Kirk Ireton at the beginning and end of Wakes Week.  For a video clip of the band on Carnival day click here

We look forward to meeting you, wherever we perform – and, if you would like to engage us, please use the “Contact Us” tab to get in touch.  The events planned for 2019 are
