Formed 1925: ‘The 80’s saw a period of great success for the Band, winning many contests. The Band moved confidently into the 21st century, qualifying twice for the National Brass Band Championships and winning promotion up to the First Section. However the closure of Ellington Colliery in 2005 and the loss of the miner’s support was a severe blow to the band. Fortunately Northumbrian Water kindly offered to support the band and continued to do so for over a decade. The Band is now one of the busiest (and best) concert bands in the North East.’
