Brass bands will play in Sheffield when a club returns for a new season.

The City of Sheffield Band Club meets at the Niagara Sports and Social Club in Wadsley Bridge.

Its 2015 series of Sunday evening concerts start on Sunday, January 25.

The concerts will be held every Sunday up to March 29, starting at 8pm, apart from March 8 when local bands will be busy performing at the Yorkshire Area Championships.

A club spokesman said: “When I was a young brass bander there were many band clubs and working men’s clubs that ran concerts for the local brass bands on a Sunday evening.

“The City of Sheffield Band Club do not want this important tradition to wither away, as it is an important platform for our local brass bands, both new and established bands.”
