We enjoyed another fantastic brass performance from our new friends, Dodworth MW Brass band in September 2015. Dronfield Brass Band set the bar high back in February, however, Thurcroft Welfare Band continued in the same vein and gave an outstanding performance back in June. This quarterly performance is proving to be a success and is growing in popularlty.
