Band in Festival of brass

A COMMUNITY play will feature performances from Newstead Brass as part of the Mansfield Arts Festival.

Not Much Matches Mansfield interprets the town’s history and will be performed at a number of locations around the town.

It will also feature a 60-strong cast from the Mansfield Palace Community Theatre Group supported by a choir of 80 school children.

The play takes place tomorrow (Saturday) and on Sunday.

Between the two performances, Newstead Brass will also feature in the Brass Spectacular at Ripley Music Festival tomorrow night (Saturday).

“The band will entertain with a range of classic, show and popular brass arrangements and compositions,” said band spokesman, Mike Allcock.

Admission is free.
