THE BESTWOOD Black Diamonds brass band brushed up their routine to perform at the 18th annual Patchings Art, Craft and Design Festival.

The event ran from Thursday June 9 to Sunday June 12 and attracted more than 200 exhibitors from around the country to the Patchings Art Centre in Calverton.

The Bestwood Village-based Black Diamonds provided some of the music during the weekend, along with Carlton Brass.

Meanwhile the Black Diamonds are on the lookout for any youngsters or adults who would like to learn how to play a brass instrument. To get involved, call in at rehearsals for the group’s training band at Bestwood Village Community Centre on Moor Road on Thursday evenings.
