Hucknall is set to host a musical Christmas feast as two of the area’s top amateur music groups come together for a Christmas Festiva at Central Methodist Church on Saturday 7th December at 7.30 pm.
Newstead Brass, 2013 winners of both the Oxford and Leicester Brass Band Festivals, will be joined by the Eastwood Collieries Male Voice Choir.
“Newstead Brass was once again complimented for our playing in the parade and service on Remembrance Sunday in Hucknall this year,” said a band spokesman. “The life and death of Lord Byron ensures an eternal link between Newstead and Hucknall and we’re delighted to be playing in Hucknall as part of our Christmas concert programme and at the end of the Christmas Carnival week when everyone is looking forward to the coming celebration.”
Tickets cost £5 and can be reserved via the band website (www.newsteadband.co.uk) or by calling 0115 952 7435.Tickets will also be available at the door.
For those looking for something a little different the band will also be playing at Lakeside Tower Restaurant near Arnold on Sunday evening, 8th December from 7pm onwards as part of a ‘Music and Dining’ evening with music from the band interspersing a three course festive meal.
