Darley Dale Band

Latest News

Responding to concerns about the Coronavirus, the band does not expect to be rehearsing in the foreseeable future. Watch this space.

In the meantime the Cory Band is carrying on with social distancing in place

The band is delighted to announce that Chris Fower has accepted the position of Musical Director in succession to Roger Jepson. Chris brings a wealth of experience in performing (Grimethorpe Colliery Band, Michael Nyman Band etc.) and teaching and we very much look forward to working with him.  Details of our 2020 programme are now available on the events page.






COVID-19 has prevented the band rehearsing since March and sadly there is no prospect of us getting together to practise, let alone to perform, in the foreseeable future. We do however look forward to seeing you whenever the band is able to give concerts again.

This is what might have been during 2020……………
