Kirkbymoorside, or Kirkby as it is known locally, is situated at the southern foothills of the North Yorks Moors. It is 7 miles from Pickering and 6 miles from Helmsley.
Kirkby has had a band since at least 1815 and we have the minutes book from 1890 until today.
The bands first contest win was the Kirkbymoorside poultry and industrial show contest of 1886.
Our band room was built in 1976 on land kindly donated by James Holt who lives in Kirkby. It is a purpose built building and is used for all band activities including practices which are three or four times a week.
We currently have a Senior Band, Junior Band, Learner Band, Community Band and a Beginner Band. Over 90 musicians in all.
The band has always been a subscription band and rely on the generosity of the public for support.
