More news from Ireland Colliery Chesterfield Band


Ireland Colliery Chesterfield Band & Raw Brewery are delighted to announce that a charity concert will take place by Boobs & Brass, a group of brass-playing ladies from across the Yorkshire and Midlands area who join together to raise money for researching a cure for breast cancer; the group have raised over £156,507 for charity since their first concert.  They will be performing as part of the Music & Real Ale Festival which is being held from 12th - 14th June 2015.  The concert will be the first live music of the weekend, starting at 8:00 pm on Friday 12th June and launching a weekend of activities at Parkside Community School, Boythorpe Mount, Chesterfield S40 2NS.
The concert starts at 8:00pm and tickets are priced at £6:00.  Tickets are available at iccbmedia@gmail.com or by telephoning 07944 851856, and more information can be found about the weekend’s events at www.iccbb.co.uk
Boobs & Brass are a group made up predominantly of women, although you may see a male amongst the ranks – if they are brave enough to wear the “pink jacket”! All the people involved with “Boobs & Brass” love music and brass bands. Undoubtedly, the greatest single contribution that each player, conductor, soloist, arranger and supporter makes is that they do it all at their own personal expense, driven by one common aim – to raise money for researching a cure for breast cancer. During the seven years existence of this unique band, nine of the playing members have encountered this horrible disease which makes them even more determined to raise funds to enable the researchers to take another step towards finding the cure.  Ireland Colliery Chesterfield Band is proud to have them launch the weekend festival and it promises to be a fun-filled, entertaining evening of music.
More information about Boobs & Brass can be found on their website at http://www.boobsandbrass.com.
The beer festival by the local Derbyshire Raw Brewing Company will have over 20 beers and ciders on offer and will have live music playing in their own facility within the site.  The event has moved this year to a larger venue and promises
