Based in Bestwood Village, Nottinghamshire.
Formed in 1947 the band was originally known as Bestwood Black Diamonds Colliery Band, named after the bright coal extracted from the mine at Bestwood.
The band is;
- Forward thinking
- But most of all, friendly
We have taken part in contests both in and around the Midlands and further afar, bringing home good results. For a number of years the band had not contested and so we are justifiably proud of our recent results.
Available for large concerts both inside and out, we are also able to cater for smaller private events such as parties and weddings with a smaller 10-piece ensemble. We also have a Swing Band and individual soloists who can play for you.
The band offers a wide repertoire of music to accommodate all tastes and can boast a history of happy customers including local councils, car enthusiasts clubs, sports clubs, remembrance service organisers and private individuals.
These unique riverside gardens have been offering visitors a tranquil setting to view the River Derwent for over 100 years. Located within the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage site adjacent to Strutt's historic North Mill the riverside promenade allows flat easy access to the gardens and riverside.
The beautiful gardens include shrubberies and colourful flowerbeds together with a central bandstand. A new featured play area offers children play facilities inspired by the history of Belper and the cotton mill industry of the world heritage site.
Rowing boats may be hired in the summer to take a trip along nearly three miles of the river and catch sight of a variety of bird life. Throughout the summer months there are band concerts, outdoor theatre and other special events in the grounds.
Features in the park include:
Boat house & Rowing Boats
Childrens Play area
Beths Poetry Trail
Mill Lade pond and ducks
