    Ireland Colliery Chesterfield band are current West Midlands brass band association Lemington Spa 4th section champions, Bolsover 4th section festival of Brass 2010 and 2011 champions, Ripon entertainment runners up and best entertaining band, Midlands Area runners up and 8th at the national finals of Great Britain 2011.

    We have a great mix of young and old in the band and a great events calendar for 2012 and beyond. We hold our own contest in June which gets bigger every year and hold a number of charity concerts throughout the year the most recent being Brass n Sax where the band was joined by the one and only Chesney Hawkes.

    Plans for next year are Butlins, Derby contest, Area Contest, Buxton, Ripon and Bolsover with a possible CD recording with that.

    The band are now trying to fill a few vacant positions on the corner line and Trombone line due to players having to leave due to work and family commitments.

    The vacant seats are 2 cornet players preferably 2nd and 3rd cornet but we have a team that if the right person came along would be happy to look at moving the line around.

    Also we are looking for a strong 2nd Trombone player to fill the space left by our last player who gave great service to the band but had to leave due to ever increasing Family and work commitments.
