Band Bookings

We are fortunate to have regular band bookings throughout the year in a range of locations all over the North East. These include public bandstands around the area, plus private birthday parties, school fêtes, museum open days, and other events. Please see the band gallery for photos of our performances.

To book DCWB for your event, please contact Joy Redfearn on 01388 608098 or use the email form on this page.

Joining the Band

We are always looking for new players to swell the ranks a little, so why not come along and join us?

We rehearse every Tuesday night from 7.30pm until 9.30pm at Hurworth Grange, near Darlington. Hurworth Grange has the benefit of beautiful grounds, car parking… and a bar, which is often where band members can be found after rehearsal!

We do not have any entry requirements for the band — all we ask is that you are willing to attend rehearsals regularly and if possible to also be available for band concerts. The most important thing is to have some fun making music with other enthusiasts — a good sense of humour is a must!

The music we play is suitable for a range of abilities, and new or lapsed players as just as welcome as ex-professionals in DCWB. In fact if you are learning an instrument or preparing for Grade exams, playing in a group will add an extra dimension to your musicianship, improve your sight reading, and will very quickly improve your standard of playing and confidence.

If you are interested in joining, please contact Joy Redfearn (01388 608098), or use the email form on this page. Alternatively, feel free to come along to rehearsal!
