Brass Band Champions 2022
Winners 1st Section Kirbymoorside.
Here is proof if proof were needed that hard work does pay off. We are over the moon with our win in Durham at the end of a month or two of very hard practicing. Our MD, Sarah got the very best out of us on the day to take the winners trophy  and of course she won the best MD.
The basses shone yet again taking the best basses. We can't wait for the UK finals in Cheltenham later in the year. Thanks' for the understanding and support of wives  husbands and parents who will now get their families back. For a report on 4barsrest, Click Here

North of England 1st Section Champions
2004 - 2008 - 2015 and 2022

Kirkbymoorside or Kirkby as it is known locally, is situated at the southern foothills of the North Yorks Moors. It is 7 miles from Pickering and 6 miles from Helmsley. Kirkby has had a band since at least 1815 and we have the minutes book from 1890 until today. The bands first contest win was the Kirkbymoorside poultry and industrial show contest of 1886. Our band room was built in 1976 on land kindly donated by James Holt who lives in Kirkby. It is a purpose built building and is used for all band activities including practices which are three or four times a week. In addition to our Senior Band we have several teaching bands ranging in ability from the Beginner Band made up of people who can play just a few notes, to a quite capable ensemble of GCSE and A level students. We also have an adult teaching band - our "Community Band" and all of our musical ensembles deliver public performances. Next door to our band room is our new concert hall. The James Holt Concert Hall was built in 2019 with very many generous donations from many people in the Kirkby and surrounding  area.. Click Here for more...
