We are an ambitious 2nd section contesting band based in Coalville, Leicestershire. We do the important area contest in February/March, along with 2 -3 other contests through the year.
We also perform concerts throughout the summer in the local area such as Coalville Park, Ibstock Palace, Mount Sorrel and Melton Park.
We perform in Coalville at the 11th November Armistice Day.
The christmas season is a great time to see us perform! We play christmas carols at various co-op stores around the Coalville and Ibstock area, along with other venues such as Markfield Retirement village. We also put on a Christmas concert at Ibstock Palace.
