Thornsett Band are a brass band based in the High Peak area of Derbyshire, UK. Thornsett Band, founded in 1895, is very much alive and well. We play at local events like the Hayfield May Queen parade as well as doing a select few concerts each year. We don’t do competitions, and Buxton is about as far as we go for a gig. We are always looking for new players, whatever their level. The practices are relaxed and good fun under our musical director Matt Gee.
The main band practice on a Monday evening 7pm – 9pm at the Thornsett Band hut in Thornsett.. There is also a learner band that also meets on a Monday evening just before the main band 6pm – 7pm.
