Hetton Silver Band Hall
This project comprised of a structured dismantling, brick-by-brick and subsequent re-building of the Durham Miners Band Hall that was originally situated in Hetton. In 2009 the enduring members of the band resolved to merge with another local band to form the Durham Miners Association Brass Band rendering the hall redundant. The Band Hall has now been lovingly restored to its former glory in its new home of Beamish Museum.
The reconstruction was the product of meticulous cataloguing, labelling and photographing by Compass Developments to faithfully reconstruct the Band Hall.
