Emley Brass Band was first set up in 1870 by workers from the local mining community and we’re still very much at the heart of the local community today. As a Charity (Registered Charity Number 1169209) we depend on support from friends, family and our local community so the band continues to develop and perform.
We are looking for sponsors to help make our 7th annual Real Ale Festival a huge local success – last year we had c. 250 people attend from Emley and beyond and 2017 will be our biggest festival to date with 50% more beer than ever before.
Any funds raised will be used to help us represent Emley and Yorkshire at a national contest in September 2017. The Real Ale Festival will be held over Easter weekend (14th – 16th April 2017) at Emley Band Room, 9 Beaumont St, Emley, HD8 9RJ.
