derwent valley wind band

Because the band is quite large we tend to play out of doors so most of our concerts are in the late Spring and Summer but we have an indoor Christmas Concert. Watch this space for more details as they become available.

Note that times are playing times.Please will band members arrive 30 minutes earlier to help get set up, tuned and so that we have the right number of seats! For large venues like Chatsworth and Nottingham do make sure that you allow adequate travelling time. The roads are congested on holiday Sundays ...
