Rotary Bakewell – 8th Brass in the Park

The popular concert is returning again on Wednesday 28th June 7.30pm to 9.30 pm, during Bakewell carnival week,. There will be four local bands – Bakewell, Cressbrook, Tideswell and Youlgrave. Everyone is invited to bring their own chairs and picnics and enjoy the midsummer fun.

We are raising funds and awareness for the Rob Burrow Centre for Motor Neurone Disease (MND), Leeds, in memory of Professor Mike Fowler who started these concerts - and also to support  Dr Louise Jordan, formerly Baslow Surgery and  founder of Helen’s Trust
