Formed in 1910 as the Craghead Colliery Band in County Durham, the band was sponsored by Ever Ready in 1968 and in 2003 it signed a new deal with the Reg Vardy Group. Following this, for the first time in its history, it finished in the top ten in every major contest for two consecutive years. The band first qualified to compete in the National Finals at the Royal Albert Hall in 1963 and has continued to qualify almost every year since; 36 times as North of England Regional Champion. A long running partnership with Ray Farr as Music Director introduced the band to a range of innovative concerts featuring the band alongside big band and swing style music.
