Four members of the band went to a workshop hosted by Bolsover District Council and run by Black Dyke Band on 7 November 2015. This was an excellent opportunity for Alice, Madi, Matthew and Finlay to learn from the best. Listening to the wisdom of Gary Curton, Jonny Bates and Richard Marshall was something that we know they will bring back to their performances with the band. Not to mention working with the Black Dyke Musical Director Nicolas Childs.
Alice and Matthew then got to play in the concert in the evening, first as the workshop band (where Alice was the only flugelhorn player!) but also as a mass band with Black Dyke in the finale of their Proms set.
