    Dates are now available for the 2010 season of the Stocksbridge Band Club. Once again held at Niagara in Sheffield.

    The season is extremely popular and we really encourage any bands who haven’t experienced it yet to get in touch, whatever standard.

    We had so many bands apply to play at the club last year that we had to dissapoint several. For this reason we've extended the band club to 18 dates, which is the most we've ever run. However these dates are already being booked up so please ask for your prefered date as soon as possible to avoid dissapointment. There's always a battle for the later dates so I'd advise to try to get in earlier in the year to have a higher chance of booking your place.

    10/01/2009 to 30/05/2009 Sunday nights - start 8pm.
    The only dates unavailable in this season are 07/03/09 (Yorkshire Area), 04/04/09 (Easter Sunday) and 09/05/09 (Spring Festival Contest)

    To book your place, either e-mail me on, send a private message on here, or phone me on 07825610319. I'll try to keep up to date on here with the availability of remaining dates as things go along.

    Have you recycled last year's dates? I think the next Spring Festival is 15/05/10, which is a Saturday.

    Hi Alex, thanks for that, I've double checked and your right, the website I picked it up off said 8th May, but this is wrong. So 9th May is available, and 15th May isn't. Thanks for for noticing the error :)

    A reminder to everyone that Stocksbridge Band has changed it's name to the City of Sheffield Band. The City Of Sheffield Band Club season begins tonight at Niagara Sports and Social Club in Hilsboro, Sheffield at 8pm. Free entry to all concerts but we ask that you support the bands by buying a raffle ticket (or 2!). See you there - Scisset Youth Band tonight.

    Previoulsy there are have been awards for "most entertaining band" and "best soloist" and I think there's a new one for "youngest player" too.

    Band will now be performing on April 11th instead of Thurcroft and the City
    of Sheffield Band will be performing on June 20th and not May 30th (Bank Holiday so cancelled). 14th Feb has also been cancelled due to Valentines Day.

    M.D. Thurlstone Band
    14th Assistant Triangle, B&R

    The City Of Sheffield Band website is now being kept up-to-date and all the band club dates are on the website (See for the new website).
    Also, band details are posted on the bands facebook page so search for 'City Of Sheffield Band' on facebook and join the group !!!

    Knottingley gave an excellent concert last night but the snow and bad weather put a few people off coming out - but it was their loss !!

    Check the website and/or facebook for future dates and come along for a great / informal night of band music....... :)
