Reeth Brass Band’s Training Band performed independently for the first time over the Christmas period, playing carols for market shoppers in Masham and Reeth. Six of the seven young players were also featured in the band’s Christmas concert, performed to a packed Reeth Memorial Hall, when they were honoured by the surprise attendance of their patron, Lord Zetland. The festivities ended with the traditional playing of carols around the village on Christmas day.
At the Christmas concert the band performed the world premier of ‘Tubby’s march’, written and conducted by their former musical director Brian Hicks in memory of their late president David (Tubby) Allinson. Members of David’s family were presented with a signed original of the score.
Other presentations included an award to Sacha Cole, the most improved young player of the year, and a tankard to bandmaster Paul Hutchinson for his outstanding services to the band. Richard Sands and Brian Hicks, the present and former musical directors, were presented with hampers.
Work has now begun to prepare and practice the music for forthcoming events, details of which can be found on the band’s website www.reethbrassband.co.uk There are still a number of spare instruments available and anyone who would like to give brass banding a try is invited to come along to Reeth Memorial Hall to a Tuesday evening practice night or contact 01765-603572 for more details.

Some of the youngest performers dancing to 'Do you want to build a snowman' from Frozen
Around 60 students and former students of Janet Seymour’s School of Theatre Dance presented two matinee performances of ‘A Christmas Collection’ to sell-out audiences, raising a grand total of £1600 for local good causes. Opening and closing with the poem ‘The Night Before Christmas’, the show featured a mixture of ballet, tap and jazz dances to seasonal music, as well as individual songs and a touch of humour from the well known Joyce Grenfell monologue ‘Nativity’.From the tiniest 3 and 4 year old ballerinas in tiaras and turquoise tutus to the more senior performers the show was a great success, sending the audiences home well and truly full of the Christmas spirit. The profit from the shows has now been divided between The Old School House Arts Centre in Leyburn and Reeth and Gunnerside School who intend to put the money towards residential visits for their pupils.
