The beautiful sound of brass music comes to Erewash this summer!

Ten concerts will take place over summer weekends this year with the return of the Bold as Brass programme. Kicking off with the Ilkeston Brass Band performing in Victoria Park on Sunday 5 June, listen to talented musicians play whilst being surrounded by the stunning gardens of the park. Every concert is free and everyone is welcome. The concert programme ends triumphantly with the Deep Down Brass Band playing at the Erewash Museum on Saturday 20 August, a perfect finale for the musical spectacular.

Councillor Carol Hart, Leader of Erewash Borough Council, says:

“We are delighted to welcome back the Bold as Brass concerts this summer. It is an excellent opportunity for everyone to enjoy our parks and exceptional local brass bands. Whether you wish to attend just one performance or all of them, it is sure to be a wonderful musical experience”
