Grimethorpe Colliery Band Principal Partner

Grimethorpe Colliery Band are extremely proud to have South Yorkshire based Dransfield Properties Ltd as their principal partner.

The partnership began in 2014, when the company agreed to sponsor the band for the next five years, helping to secure its future and maintain Grimethorpe's position as one of the world’s leading bands. The announcement was made on Monday April 14th at a concert in aid of the Mayor of Barnsley’s Charity.

Managing Director of Dransfield Properties, Mark Dransfield, said: “We are delighted and extremely proud to be supporting the Grimethorpe Colliery Brass Band. We are a local company and great admirers of the band, not just for their excellent achievements as fine musicians, but also for the work they do in their own community in inspiring young people to get involved with music. We are pleased therefore to be able to play our part in supporting that work and look forward to a long association with the band”.

Band Chairman Peter Haigh said:“We are highly delighted to have Dransfield Properties sponsoring the band. It is not easy in today’s climate to get financial backing and this support certainly goes a good way to securing the band’s future.”
