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.
