The show will take place on the evening of Saturday 27th July.

The historic band recently celebrated its 65th birthday with a spectacular performance in the heart of Clumber Park, and were supported by a host of former conductors, VIPs and members of the public.

The performance coincided with the opening of their new band room in Hardwick Village, leased to them by the National Trust after they were forced to leave their former home.

Recent months have seen the Championship Section ensemble, led by professional conductor Brian Grant, achieve 4th place in the prestigious All England Masters International.

The band have also enjoyed presenting Karl Jenkins’ ‘The Armed Man’ with Lichfield Cathedral Chorus, with whom it hopes to take part in future musical projects.

A Band spokesperson said: “We really enjoy coming to The Crossing because it’s a superb concert venue and we are made to feel really welcome”.

He added: “Our supporters club ‘The Canaries’ like it too, not least because it’s such a short journey away!”

With their extensive musical repetoire, a performance from the Thoresby Colliery Band’s offers something for everyone, from the serious to the light-hearted and from the fortissimo to the pianissimo.

Doors at The Crossing will open shortly before the band take to the stage, at 6.45pm.

The concert itself will get underway at 7.30pm.

Tickets are priced at £9 for adults, £8 concessions and £4 for the under-16s.

To book in advance, call the ticket office on 01909 475421 or email [email protected] - all tickets to be collected from the ticket office on the day. Tickets will also be available on the door on the night of the performance.
