The Glossop School Band was born in 1964; it then consisted of four second hand instruments and three players and progress over the next six years was steady rather than spectacular. By the start of the 1970's the number had grown sufficiently to attempt contests and their results from then were truly spectacular thus starting a period over the 70's and 80's that became its 'Glory Days'.
Two acclaimed High Peak musicians have collaborated on a brand new show all about surveillance. The new production from Glossop based singer-songwriters Steve Roberts and Matt Hill, is called '2084' and will receive its world première at Buxton Fringe Festival in July. The show is set in the year '2084' where our every thought, movement and word are under surveillance by the authorities. Twelve original songs explore themes like regret, betrayal, resistance and defiance. The live performances will be interspersed with snatches of a conversation as the audience 'eavesdrop' on a couple as they relax at home.
