Derbyshire’s friendliest brass band. We are a family orientated brass band based in Derbyshire, UK. Ilkeston Brass has a long standing history dating back to the 1930s, when it was known as “The Stanton Ironworks Band”.
Today, as Ilkeston Brass, we are kindly sponsored by Ron Brooks Toyota , who are currently celebrating their 50th Anniversary Year.
We are proud to be a competitive 4th Section Band, based in the East Midlands Area.
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.
