Shirland Welfare Brass Band has been named as the selection for the 2018 Listen with the Band concert on Saturday 20th October.
There has been a brass band in the Derbyshire village of Shirland since 1881 and they are just as popular today as they have ever been winning a loyal following for their entertaining style and wide repertoire.
The band holds a number of awards and is the current North East Midlands Contest Third Section champions. To maintain continuity they have a long established training band for teaching children in the Chesterfield, Nottingham and Alfreton areas.
This is the Fourth annual Listen with the Band concert organised by the Nottingham Rotary Club and will be held as usual in the Lutterell Hall, Church Street, West Bridgford where the acoustics are excellent.

- Studio House is a residential drug and addition rehabilitation centre
- Dolly Parton Imagination Library, is a free book scheme to support early childhood literacy
Emmanuel House provide night shelters and support for the homeless and vulnerable.
