- Gala Theatre, Durham
will always remember our trip to the finals this year for the worries
about the C Virus. But we did practice very hard and were rewarded with a
third place, which we were OK with. Every one played well and the
percussion section won 'Best Percussion'. We will have to wait and see
what happens but let's hope we can continue banding during the next
month or two?..

you there. We will have a full report here soon To see the details of
the build and opening evening

Gold - London to Kirkbymoorside ride for the new Band Hall
only a thirty year hiatus, I dusted off my trumpet and starting playing
for the Community section of the Kirkbymoorside Town Band and I absolutely
love it. It's amazing that a town the size of Kirkbymoorside can field
the number of players they have. Travelling from North Yorkshire to
London to see friends and family and for work over many years has often
made me wonder about doing the journey on a bike, though perhaps not on
the A1... Helping raise funds to finish the new band room provides an
excellent excuse to finally do it. I will set off from King's Cross Station
on Saturday 22nd June and will aim to arrive back in Kirkbymoorside the
following day. The total distance will be roughly 230 miles and because
Iím travelling from south to north, it will be entirely uphill!
Well my target was 500 but by the time I reached the band room,
the total had reached 1654.00.Well
done George and THANK'S.

Three of the bandís
younger players, Charlie Flintoft, Ella Smailes, both aged 11, and Theo
Flintoft, 10, travelled to London to scale the 02 Arena.
The trio braved extremely harsh winds and rain to reach the top of the
100 metre high diameter structure. Leading the expedition they reached
the top in just under 25 minutes
In total the team, who play in the beginner, learner and training bands
have raised more than £350 for the new band hall.
March and Hymn Contest
We thought we played
OK, unfortunately the adjudicator did not agree. Never mind bring on
next year. The marching adjudicator on the other hand, thought we were
great and '1st on the march' was the prize. The training band played
very well too and received a great ovation.

all the support for the band and we hope you enjoyed the trip around
our wonderful county. A very very special thank's to Yorkshires own

Run - Sunday 5th May 20019
Sails and Matthew Baildon
Joe and Matt ran in the 10k run
to raise cash, over £1000, for the new Band Hall. The band would
like to thank them both for their time and and effort, especially Joe who
ran with a bass strapped to his back. We played for most of the run and
enjoyed the day in spite of the cold wind. Some of the competitors were
actually sweating, Click the image for a bigger one
