Newstead ready for Christmas

REHEARSALS are continuing for Newstead Brass band’s annual festive treat — the ‘Sounds Like Christmas’ concert at Hucknall Parish Church.

The band, under musical director Duncan Beckley, will be joined by the Bestwood Male Voice Choir for the concert on Monday December 19. Tickets are now on sale.

Other highlights of Newstead’s pre-Christmas programme include the Gedling Borough Council civic carol service on Saturday December 10 and ‘Christmas Brass At The Proms’ at Epperstone Village Hall on Friday December 16.

The band’s new CD, ‘Goldcrest’, will be available at all of the concerts. The album was recorded at the Central Methodist Church in Hucknall and it is being touted as a perfect Christmas present for music lovers.
