    As of September, Swinton and District Excelsior Band is in need of a Bandmaster. We are a Third Section Band based just outside Malton in North Yorkshire, and are keen to improve our playing and performance. Players are of all ages and there is a very friendly atmosphere. Band practices are Monday and Wednesday evenings with a learners session on Saturday evenings.

    We are looking for an experienced conductor to take on a commitment to our busy schedule of summer playing, weeknight practices and the occasional contest.

    To get more of an idea af the band visit our website

    If you like what you see and think you might be the person we are looking for, please contact the Band Secretary, Mrs Dorothy Ratcliffe, 77 Commercial Street, Norton, Malton, North Yorkshire, YO17 9HX. Tel. 01653 694344. Email

    Sadly, after we thought we'd got ourselves sorted with a fantastic new bandmaster, pressure of work has meant that he has had to leave us, so we are back looking for a new bandmaster! We are just as nice a lot as ever and we desperately want someone to hold us together. If there is anyone out there who would like to take us to Malton Brass in November PLEASE get in touch with Dorothy on 01653 694344 (

    Delighted to report that we have appointed Kevin Donaldson as bandmaster, in what for us is record time!

    We could still use a soprano player and some cornets though!
