NEWSTEAD Brass Band will perform a musical Christmas feast celebrating some of the best of the region’s current and up-coming talent during a special concert at Hucknall’s Central Methodist Church on Thursday December 20th.

Newstead Brass and musical director Duncan Beckley will be joined by the talented young saxophonists of ‘Imperfect Fifth’ and teenage vocalist Laura Hanson.

There will also be carols for the audience to sing with the band. ‘Sounds Like Christmas’ begins at 7.30 pm on Thursday December 20th with ‘pre-concert’ music from some of the young players of the Bestwood ‘Black Diamonds’ training band.

A band spokesman added, “We’re delighted to once again complete our Christmas programme with a concert in Hucknall. 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.”

Tickets cost £5 and can be purchased via, or reserved by calling 0115 952 7435.
