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 or by telephoning 07944 851856, and more information can be found about the weekend’s events at
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”!

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.

More information about Boobs & Brass can be found on their website at
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
