Dobcross Silver Band - winner’s of John Packer Ltd & Sterling Musical Instruments Competition to win David Thornton – will be showcasing their prize at a special concert on Sunday July 8th.

Band member Paul Clough entered the competition to win David at the John Packer stand at Butlin’s Mineworker’s Brass Band Competition in Skegness last January.

Paul had the choice of having a private lesson with David, a band masterclass, or David featuring in a special concert.

Anyone who has seen David perform will know that the concert promises to be a very exciting event.

John Packer’s and Sterling – proud competition sponsors – will also have a presence on the night. Rob Hanson (one of the Company's Directors and experienced musician) will be joining the band for the concert, guesting in the cornet section which he used to play in over 18 years ago.

The concert will take place at Dobcross Silver Band Club, on Platt Lane, Dobcross. Doors open at 7.30pm.

Tickets cost £7.50 for adults, £5 for AOPs and under 16s. They are available from Dobcross Band Club, Dobcross Post Office and Uppermill Post Office. Tickets can also be reserved over the phone on 07715 680782.
