About Us

Teesside Wind Band is a Middlesbrough based concert band which meets weekly, on a Tuesday, at Marton Methodist Church.


We are made of up of local musicians who enjoy playing for fun, making new friends and performing regularly across Teesside and the wider area. (See the concert pages)

New members are always welcome. We do not have a rigid band structure, so, as long as your instrument is one that you blow into - percussionist excepted - you should fit in.

We currently would like more Flautists and Clarinettists - however, we do have a waiting list for Alto Saxophonists!
