Sadly due to COVID19 the brass band has been on hold
Geoff, the conductor is hoping to hear very soon about reopening of the band room so rehearsals can start again.
If you are an ex player or you would like to play or you want to learn locally Then Tingley Brass band is the band for you.
Normal rehearsals and the youth training band meet at the centre at Blackgates school.
So while you wait for the reopening, polish up your mouth pieces and get that lip back in!

What if I told you there was a single intervention we could deliver in our cities that would cool them during heatwaves, reduce flooding, scrub pollutants from the air, boost biodiversity, improve public health, and even reduce crime? You wouldn't believe me. But it's true.
