First engagement in 2021


We were delighted to be able to work with Wetherby Riverside Trust and open their Summer Season by performing, near the bandstand, in a secure and safe environment. 

Great fun and so glad to be back playing as a band after 15 months off! 


Promotion to Championship Status

As winners of the North of England 1st Section Areas in March 2020 we are now proud to be representing the City of Ripon at this very 'top level' of Brass Banding.


Due to the finals being cancelled in September 2020 we are now looking forward to attending the re-scheduled finals in Cheltenham this coming September. If anyone would like more information about the band, its contest progression, history and current vacancies please feel free to drop me a text.
