Rocking Horse Rehearsal Rooms

New location found for Rocking Horse!

After over a year of searching we’ve finally found our new premises‚Ķ.. and we’re moving to Coxhoe.

The new Rocking Horse is going to be bigger and better, we think it will be a real asset for the Village.

Whilst this means we will no longer be based in Durham City, we’re hoping to bring all of you along with us.

Our bands come from all over the North East and Coxhoe is perfectly situated, being just off the A1 at Bowburn.

We have until the end of November to vacate our Durham City site and we’re hoping to have a few rooms open for bookings before then.

While it’s great that we have a place to go to, we’re still facing the huge cost of rebuilding.

With this in mind, we’ve set up a Crowdfunder page for anyone who wishes help us buy materials for the new studios. There’s rewards for donors including tickets to our opening event and entry to prize draws for studio time. Here’s a link if you wish to donate:

Work has already started on the new site, but it’s going to be tough to get it all done in time. We’re having to do the work ourselves and we’re critically short of people.

We’re looking for help with building the soundproof rooms, so we’ve started a facebook group for volunteers. Here’s the link if you want to get involved.

Thank you so much for you support through this difficult time, if all goes to plan, we can continue to nurture and develop grass-roots music in County Durham.
