The NASUWT Concert Band is a 2nd Section brass band within the North East of England.
We rehearse on a Wednesday night 7-9pm and a Sunday afternoon 4-6pm in our purpose built band room in Pelton Fell.
The band regularly perform at events and contests across the region and recently won the Stanley Entertainment Contest's Section A for the second year running.
In January 2018 the band appointed Andrew Hall as their new Musical Director and are excited with the direction he is taking the band in.
We rehearse and perform an eclectic mix of music. The band welcome any players into the band room for a one off rehearsal or to join the band. We welcome both contesting and non contesting players. We already have a small number of players who prefer to be non contesting due to work and external commitments.
Public Performance Place
Not actually a Bandstand but an outdoor Amphitheatre in the centre of the park.
You can drive into the park from 8.30am to 7.00pm daily. After this time pedestrian access remains open with 24 hour access to the park.
There is limited parking for 25 cars which includes three blue badge holder bays - 50p per half hour (max stay of 3 hours)
Wharton Park is built on a hill and access for many visitors may be a problem. We have improved access to the park where possible but this is a difficult site due to the steep inclines around the park.
From the car park located at the top of Framwellgate Peth you can access the Heritage Centre with ease and use our disabled viewing area to look down on the Amphitheatre and over the park and city.
Should you wish to access the Amphitheatre and lower level of the park such as the Community Garden area, we would advise you to use the North Road ramped access point. Using this entrance will still involve an incline however this is far less steep than accessing via the upper car park.
Whilst every effort goes into ensuring this gig listing is accurate and up to date, always check with the venue before you travel.
