The Ovington Tynedale Reunion Band

The Ovington Tynedale Reunion Band are a group of brass band players who get together specifically to play at The Carols at the Cross. They have been with us come rain or shine (but as the event starts at 6:30 just before Christmas then the sun has never really 'shined'). You can see the brave musicians arriving from 6:00 onwards setting up to the sound of the Ryton Church bells. A few years ago the band used to practice in Ryton Community Centre. They no longer have a permanent rehearsal space but they assure us that they practice for many weeks before the event (and it shows!).



If there are any budding brass players amoung you who wish to join a band in the area, then speak to a member of the band after the event and they will be only too pleased to give you contact details of one of the many thiving brass band still playing in the North East.


Next Carols at the Cross will be on Tuesday 22nd December 2020 in 52 days time
