We need your help so we can continue to offer and even expand our service in providing free instrumental lessons for anyone wishing to learn a brass or percussion instrument!

The band is a totally self funded organisation and relys on members subscriptions and income raised through concerts. As with most bands of long standing, family connections have provided a stable core of support. In recent years whole families have played with the band, most of them having started with the Academy Band or learners class. 

We have a history dating back to 1932 when our founder George Gibb formed the band as a means of social activity for miners after a hard days toil underground. The band are proud of it's mining heritage and still carry "Colliery" in it's  name today.

Band members play purely for the pleasure it gives to them and to the people who wish to be entertained, they are all give their time voluntarily.

Thank you very much for your support and good luck!

Yours sincerely,

Mrs Bridgette Goold
