Tewit Youth Band 40th Anniversary
2018 marks the 40th anniversary of Tewit Youth Band.
Starting with just 15 young people in 1978, Tewit now has 130 members age 6-18 in 2018. Some of the current players have parents who were members themselves. The Tewit Band organisation has become a wonderful asset to the brass band world, with many former players still active in music at all levels. Tewit alumni are involved in local bands in Harrogate, Knaresborough, and Ripon including the newly formed Tewit Silver Band. Others have gone on to play with Championship Bands including Yorkshire Imps, Leyland, Grimethorpe, Carlton Main Frickley and Black Dyke Band. Some players are now professional musicians, conductors and teachers, sharing their expertise with our next generation of players.
It is with some disappointment that we have to announce that unfortunately, we are having to cancel the 40th Anniversary Celebration Dinner which was to be held on Saturday 19th May 2018 at The Majestic Hotel, Harrogate. We have however, planned a special 40th Anniversary Presidents Concert on Saturday 23rd June 2018 at The Majestic Hotel to which you are all invited to attend. Please keep the date free and eyes peeled for further information. Thank you to those who supported the event and apologies for the cancellation.
