Brass band kick off festive season

Have your say

HATHERSAGE Brass Band will usher in the festive season with two nights of pies, peas and Christmas Carol performances.

The carol evenings will be held on December 10 and 17 at Peak District hotel The Maynard.

“People come back to this event year after year,” said Jane Hitchman director of The Maynard.

“With the hotel all trimmed up and the band playing yuletide favourites, it’s a really fantastic traditional Christmas atmosphere - like stepping out of a Christmas card.”

The popular band is a local institution, having survived both World Wars where it played music to keep the local spirits high.

People are advised to book now to avoid disappointment.
