Darley Dale Band

Latest News

This week is the first annual Brass Band Week.  For details of events see https://www.bbe.org.uk/concerts

Kirk Ireton again provided a sunny day for our annual visit to lead their carnival procession – always a nice occasion.

The next chance to hear the band will be at Barringtons in Darley Dale on 28th July.   For the complete list of their Sunday evening band concerts see  their programme here.

Darley Dale Band currently has an almost full team of players but would like to recruit cornet and trombone players and welcomes enquiries about membership. We have a number of instruments available for loan. At the moment we do not provide training for beginners (although we have had a training band and could do so again) so Grade 5 level on paper or the equivalent in experience is desirable.  If you would like to join the Band (or at least give us a try) you can use the “Contact Us” tab or contact our band manager Steve Thompson direct on 07876 190132 or [email protected]

Then come to South Darley Village Hall at 7.15 on a Monday evening. The hall is at Cross Green on the B5057 road from Darley Bridge to Wensley, opposite St Mary’s Church.  The post code is DE4 2JT.  You will be very welcome.
