Conducted on this post-Jubilee occasion by Dave Purkiss, the band will perform music with a regal flavour and show they continue to be included in the top tier of brass bands.

Crossing concerts programmer David Jordan said: “Worksop is really fortunate to have a Championship Section band right on its doorstep and our acoustics at The Crossing are just right to show off the skills and talents of the instrumentalists,” he said.

Thoresby Colliery Band prestigiously qualified to represent the Midlands in the National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain at the Royal Albert Hall along with the Virtuosi GUS.

Tickets for the 7.30pm concert are priced £9, £8 concessions and £4 for under 16s and can be bought by emailing [email protected] or calling 01909 475421.
