G.T Group Band Peterlee

The G.T Group Band Peterlee was formed in 1974 as the Peterlee Town Band. The band was formed jointly between Peterlee Town Council who bought the instruments and Peterlee Development Corporation who provided the uniforms.

In 1993 the band gained sponsorship from the G.T Group of Companies, an engineering group that has its headquarters in Peterlee, and consequently changed the name to the G.T Group Band Peterlee. Although now known as the G.T Group Band we are still the local town band and have town councillors who sit on the band committee
