We established our training band Bedale Bandits to encourage people of any age who are interested in playing a musical instrument to come and join us. We currently have 15 members and we meet every Wednesday at Leeming Village Hall from 6.30 to 7.30 p.m.
We have a team of helpers including members of the Senior Band, and we often play alongside the Senior Band at concerts. We play a mixture of popular songs as well as traditional music including The Wensleydale Suite, Eye of The Tiger, and Pirates of the Carribean.
Please get in touch and give it a try. We have a range of instruments we can loan to you. We just ask that you look after them and return them if choose to leave the band.
Our Training Band consists of:
Cornets Eleanor Donaghy, Erin Philips, Alison Stones, Jake Blakeston
Stanley Simpson, Coco Oldham
Clarinet Carol Kirk
Roddie Newman , Shaun Donaghy, Owen Simpson, Martin
