After an absence of 8 years, one the oldest bands in the country, (having won its first contest on 11th Sept 1869), Stanley Newmarket Colliery Band have re-formed. The band last competed in the 2nd section of the Yorkshire areas 2005 and intend to take part in this contest next year. Our first rehearsal took place on Monday 15th April 2013. We rehearse on Monday Evenings from 8.00 - 10.00pm at Micklefield Primary School, Great North Road, Micklefield. LS25 4AF There are vacancies throughout the band and we would be grateful for any help - even if you dont want to register with us!
