About Us

Ireland Colliery Chesterfield Band is a Third Section Brass Band based in the heart of Chesterfield, Derbyshire.

The band has a busy and varied programme of concerts, competitions and engagements throughout the year meaning there is never a dull moment.


Brass Band Bonanza: Saturday 27th April

Make a date with us on Saturday, 27th April, for our Brass Band Bonanza at St John’s Church, Walton. Doors open at 1900 for a 1930 start. The concert is in aid of NEDDC Chairman’s 2024 Charity Appeal for Ashgate Hospice, a fantastic cause.

We’ve got some awesome music coming up for you, and we can’t wait to see you there for what’s going to be a brilliant evening.
