Two local music organisations that met over Beer & Carols in Ruddington last December are meeting up for a midsummer concert date this Saturday, 22nd June, at St Peter’s Church in Ruddington with a 7pm start.

Newstead Brass and the Ruddington Community Choir shared the stage for a Beer & Carols night to open the popular Ruddington Village Christmas concert late in 2023 and enjoyed each other’s company so much they wanted to come together for a concert in the town.

‘Midsummer Music’ will see the two groups share the stage again, with a wide variety of music to showcase their vocal and instrumental skills. Popular chart songs from the last 50 years (Abba, Beach Boys and Spice Girls) will mix with the best of the West End and Broadway, Ratpack favourites and silver screen classics (Jungle Book, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang) as well as a 16th Century canon and a little bit of acid jazz!

A band representative said, “Newstead Brass are looking forward to a rare visit south of the Trent and meeting up again with the Ruddington Community Choir to perform at St Peter's Church. We were asked to play for a wedding there a few years ago and look forward to a concert in the church’s wonderful acoustics.”
