Newstead Brass Band ready for annual Christmas concert

NEWSTEAD Brass Band will host their annual ‘Sounds like Christmas’ concert on 19th December.

The popular event, which begins at 7.30pm, will take place at St Mary Magdalene Parish Church in Hucknall, where the band will be joined by the Bestwood Male Voice choir.

There will also be carols for the audience to sing with the band and choir. Tickets cost £5 (accompanied children under 12 free) and can be purchased via the band website (, from band and choir members, or reserved by calling 0115 952 7435.

A band spokesman added: “We’re delighted to once again complete our Christmas programme with a concert at Hucknall Parish Church.

“Even though the band relocated from Hucknall to Newstead over 20 years ago, the ‘Byron story’ ensures we retain strong links with the town with regular concerts as well as leading the annual remembrance parade.”
