Double-booked for the Jubilee

NEWSTEAD Brass are doubling up on Bank Holiday Monday with TWO concert appearances to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

The award-winning band will first play in Derbyshire to open the ‘BIG Street Party’ in Loscoe. The event features a ‘Kings And Queens’ fancy dress and plenty of family attractions.

Then it is across the border and back into Nottinghamshire to perform for the finale of Kirkby-in-Ashfield’s Jubilee Party In The Park at Kingsway Park.

A band spokesman said: “We are delighted to be a part of the local celebrations on this special weekend. Brass bands are part of our heritage, so it is fitting that so many bands nationally are supporting these community events.”
