At the Winding Wheel
Since the decline of the coal industry in the UK which provided much needed funding to the brass band movement, many bands found it a struggle to survive. Some bands folded altogether but many merged, and this is what the Ireland Colliery Band and the Pearsons Pottery Band did in the late eighties, to form what has now become Ireland Colliery Chesterfield Band. Colliery brass bands are part of the cultural history and heritage of the local area and the Ireland Colliery Chesterfield Band, through its players and committee are committed to maintain this link for future generations.
Throughout the years the band has achieved success throughout the different sections in the Brass Band League table and we are currently working hard to retain our place in the First Section.
At Ireland Colliery Chesterfield Band our purpose and ethos is to make music, whilst enjoying the camaraderie that being part of a team provides, but most of all to have fun!
The current band has a mixture of youth and experience, led by our new Musical Director, Mr David Holling.
