The Band have finished the final 4 jobs in December and 2017. Tuesday saw the band perform at St Thomas' Church at Stanley Crook, performing alongside the Crook and Weardale Choral Society. It is one of the band's favourite concerts throughout the Christmas Season and it was a thoroughly enjoyable performance by both the Band and the Choir.
Thursday and Friday saw the band perform outside at Sainsbury's (Arnison Centre in Durham). A big thank you goes to all the shoppers who stopped and listened to us and put something in our collecting buckets. It is very much appreciated.
Saturday saw the band play in the final job of 2017 in Durham Market Place. Thank you to everyone who dug deep on Saturday and put a donation into our collecting buckets. It is much appreciated. Thank you also goes to David who helped us out on Euphonium today, the help was really much appreciated.
Overall, the band have really enjoyed spreading Christmas cheer to people right across County Durham throughout 2017. A big thank you goes to everyone who saw us performing during the Christmas Season and by digging deep and putting a donation into our collecting buckets throughout all the jobs where we were collecting.
A hard earned break now begins for the band and once the New Year comes,, it will be time to start preparing for the League Contest (Durham County Brass Band Association Contest) on Sunday 4th February and more importantly, preparing for the Area Contest (North of England Brass Band Championships) in March 2018.
