Collingham Band is a friendly community wind band of woodwind and brass players. Our members are from all points on the age range spectrum from school students to retired adults.
Collingham Band performs at local events in the Wetherby area throughout the year, raising money for charities. Some of these events include the Great Yorkshire Show in Harrogate, Collingham Gala and in 2014 the Grand Départ of the Tour de France at Harewood House, Leeds.
Each Christmas, Collingham Band performs festive music outside Morrisons in the Horsefair Centre at Wetherby.
Donations to the charities supported by Collingham Band total several hundred pounds each year. Some of the recent charities which have benefited include British Red Cross, CRUK (Cancer Research UK) and WiSE (Wetherby in Support of the Elderly).
