Over 100 young brass and woodwind players from across Blackhall and Easington performed to a capacity audience at Blackhall Community Centre on Tuesday 11th December. The Blackhall Community Christmas Concert featured local school children from Blackhall Primary, Hesleden Primary, St Josepsh's Blackhall and Easington Colliery Primary School alongside East Durham Wind Band, Blackhall Youth Brass Band and the award winning Fishburn Brass Band. The concert arranged by Durham Music Service was kindly sponsored by Monk Hesleden Parish Council. Cllr Gaynor Crute welcomed all the musicians and was "delighted to support special performance opportunities for the local children".
