Ballerina- Dedicated to our friends in Thornley, Durham
As the Durham Miners' Gala has been cancelled this year, we have created a special lockdown video to remind everyone of the great days we have had in Durham in recent years
We look forward to meeting up again
I'll Walk with God
Nestling in the outskirts of Rotherham, South Yorkshire, our band was originally formed by the Miners Welfare Committee for the benefit of Thurcroft Colliers and their families. Despite the closure of the pit, "the band plays on" through competitions, concerts and events that require outstanding musical entertainment.
We welcome players of all abilities and/or instrument to come and join in any time.
To give the band an idea of who's been visiting, you can write in the guestbook.
