MUSICAL DIRECTOR:-   GEOF BENSON

(The Band was formally known as Pleasley Colliery Silver Prize Band)

  The general consensus is that the band began life around 1883 ten years or so after the first mine shafts were sunk in 1871 – 73, the first coal being hewn in 1875.      At that time Stanton Ironworks Company owned both Pleasley and Teversal Collieries. Pleasley Colliery being the second oldest pit in the north Derbyshire coalfield.

EVENTS REVIEW


Christmas Concerts at Welbeck Abbey with the Mansfield Hospital League of Friends and at our own venue ‘Pleasley Welfare’ were both sell outs and extremely well received by the audiences such that we have already been asked when the next one will be. Events will be posted all in good time after formalising this years agenda. Keep a lookout in our diary of events and please make sure to book your tickets early to avoid disappointment on the day as we had to decline a few late bookings for our own concert.


We will now be competing in a higher section and our first outing in the

2nd Section will be at the

Butlins Mineworkers Festival

Test piece ‘INCLUSION’ by Paul Sharman
