KSSB at the Fun Palace

On the 6th October 2018 the band were asked to take part in a Kirkby Stephen Community Arts “Fun Palace” day – a celebration of culture in our local community. A small group, led by band chairman John Ockenden, demonstrated how brass instruments work and how to play music on a hosepipe – with some help. A delighted and amused audience (aged from 3 years old to slightly less young) took the opportunity to try out a range of instruments brought to the event by the band. To close the day on a high note, we finished with participants joining in, as the band played a simple tune.

You can see photos of the event in our gallery, and this brilliant video shows these novices’ first ever note playing with a brass band 

We’ve changed the look of our web site.

We hope you find it easy to locate any information you want.

Most of our summer events are now out of the way and we are preparing for our next concert in October. Our events and rehearsals are all listed under EVENTS. We welcome new players and complete beginners so why not come along in this new school year and find out why playing in a brass band is so much fun.
