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.






During the coming year the band is still hoping to enjoy some regular events – Kirk Ireton Carnival, Winster Christmas lights – and a return to some of last year’s new ones – Queen’s Park, Chesterfield.  The celebration of VE Day has had to be cancelled and regretfully the band has decided not to visit Onzain with the Darley Dale Twinning Association at the end of May.  We look forward to seeing you whenever the band is able to perform again.
