The multi-talented Derbyshire Volunteers will return once again for their annual Traditional Mid-Winter Revels concert at Derby’s Assembly Rooms on Sunday, January 19.

The fundraising concert will get under way at 6pm.

You can expect an incredible sound from this 18-piece band, made up of the who’s who of the Derbyshire folk scene.

This event is very much a coming together of folk music enthusiasts from the Midlands. It’s a “proper ceilidh”, where people get together to enjoy music, song and dance.

So if you have never been to a proper ceilidh before, now is your chance to get your feet tapping to the music, join in the chorus, and enjoy a couple of great dance displays during the interval.

Whether a listener or a dancer, The Derbyshire Volunteers delight audiences wherever they perform.

Voices are raised, concertinas pressed, fiddles caressed, banjos plucked, guitars strummed, melodeons squeezed, bodhrans belted, brass bellowed, and keyboards are tinkled at the Mid-Winter Revels.

Come along and have a fun night and support these very worthy charities.

Proceeds from this year’s concert will go to two charities: The Padley Centre, the hostel for the homeless, Derby, and Ataxia UK - Derbyshire Group.

Tickets for the Traditional Mid-Winter Revels are £12, with accompanied children under 16 years of age getting in for free.

The tickets are available from the box office at the Assembly Rooms on 01332 255800.
