An Evening With Michael Dodd – Venue Update

** Updated 23/03/2014 at 16:16**

As you may be aware, on Friday 14th March, the Derby Assembly Rooms suffered a major incident in the adjoining car park which has lead to the cancellation of all events at the Assembly Rooms until May 12th 2014.  This includes Derby Concert Band’s upcoming performance with Michael Dodd.

We are pleased to announce that an alternative venue has been found, and the performance will go ahead as planned!

We will now be at Woodlands School, Blenheim Drive, Allestree, Derby DE22 2LW.

We have obtained tickets that were left at the Derby Live box office for collection on the night, and they will be available for collection on the evening of the performance at Woodlands School.  Those, along with any tickets you are already in possession of, will be honoured for entry in to the performance.

If you do not yet have a ticket, we expect limited tickets to be available for purchase on the door, and of course, available through band members through the usual channels.

If you are now unable to make the performance due to the venue relocation, please contact us by e-mail at, and we will advise how to get a full refund.

The performance will start at 7.30pm on 29th March 2014.  Refreshments and a raffle will be available, with all proceeds from these going to charity.

In other news, rehearsals have been sounding great, both the band alone, and with our guest star Michael Dodd.  The entire band is excited about performing an extremely varied and interesting programme, and we can’t wait to see you!
