Kirkby Colliery Welfare Band
We are a traditional British Brass Band based in Kirkby in Ashfield, Nottinghamshire
We are busy rehearsing for the Midland Area Contest on the 8th March at Kenilworth. The test piece is 'Neverland' by Christopher Bond. The band love this piece and are raring to go !
On Saturday 29th February - there is a band Showcase evening, where bands from each section play their test piece for the Midland area contest the following week. See us at The Ashwood Centre, Portland St, Kirkby in Ashfield, NG17 7AB.
Doors open at 6.45pm we perform at 7.30pm .
Our band has a proud history and our heritage stems from the former local coal mine (see our history page). We pride ourselves on our high standard of performance and the ability to play a wide range of music to suit all tastes and occasions. We love to give concerts and have strong links with local churches and other organisations. We are available for village fetes, weddings, more formal occasions or even in smaller groups if required. At Christmas we can be seen practically everywhere playing traditional carols and popular Christmas music. On Remembrance Day we are out in force to honour our service personnel.
