Reeth Brass Band use the Hall as a base and practice there every week. David Allinson, the band's president is celebrating his 80th birthday this summer with a grand charity concert in aid of the British Heart Foundation and Cancer Research UK. This will be held in St Andrew’s church, Grinton, at 3pm on Saturday, September 5.
David was a playing member of the band for over 60 years until ill health forced his retirement last year. Members of Muker Silver Band will join the Reeth band to play a variety of traditional and popular music.
Admission to the concert is free and the retiring collection will be split between the two charities which have been personally important to David in recent years.

Tony Wright was the lead singer and frontman of Terrorvision (originally The Spoilt Bratz) in addition to appearing in Never Mind the Buzzcocks and presenting Top of the Pops, with Top Ten hits which included Perseverance and Tequila. Tony's very first solo album sees him take a more acoustic based approach with arguably his strongest and most personal song writing to date.
Tony will be embarking on a Coast to Coast cycling adventure on July 3rd and will be cycling over four days from St Bee's to Robin Hoods Bay, raising money for three charities - the RNLI who support the St Bee's life guards, Keswick Mountain Rescue who do great work in the Lake District, and York Arc Light, a Yorkshire based charity that helps the homeless. Half way through (after cycling 50 miles earlier in the day) he'll be playing a special acoustic gig in Reeth at 8pm on Saturday 4th July.
