South Tyneside Brass bands

The South Tyneside Junior, Intermediate and Premier Brass bands contribute to keeping alive the much-loved local tradition of brass bands in the region. Children and young people join the bands when they start lessons, but are welcome to join any time whether they are new beginners or have achieved a high level of progress already. The bands enjoy playing outdoors as often as possible, regularly drawing crowds in South Shields town centre and at prominent events such as Armistice Day and the Cookson Parade. The bands play an exciting assortment of music genres from the very traditional to rock and pop favourites.

Rehearsals: Saturday mornings during term time

Venue: Chuter Ede Education centre
