By 2000 the sponsorship of North Skelton Band had and that the band had stopped competing in 2000. During this millennium year the band narrowly missed out on a trip to the National Finals, coming third in the North of England Area contest. As a substitute to going to the 'finals' Langbaurgh Brass made its first appearance at the Pontins' Contest. Competing in the 3rd section the band came 4th.
In 2001 Langbaurgh Brass qualified for the National Finals again in the third section. This time the band would come 4th. Building on this success the band went on to also win the Pontins contest (3rd section) this year. At the end of this year the band were promoted to the 2nd section.
Langbaurgh Brass won the North of England (second section) contest the following year (2002) at the first time of asking. At the National Finals the band came 5th.
In 2003 the band went on to wind the North of England second section again, and this time at the National Finals came 4th in the competition held in Dundee.
2004 saw the band promoted to the 1st section.
In 2005 Langbaurgh Brass came second in the North of England (1st section) contest and again represented the area in the National finals contest. Following this contest the band parted company with it's long time conductor Tim Oldroyd.
Langbaurgh Brass subsequently moved from their band room behind the Village Hall back into the original North Skelton Band band room. Although externally reclad and internally refurbished, this building goes back to the mining days of the village.
Langbaurgh Brass decided to reform as North Skelton Band from October 1st 2008. This decision also coincides with the return of our former musical director Tim Oldroyd. Tim was with the band for many years and contributed towards it's past success.
The 'new' North Skelton Band competed in Section B at the Durham League in November 2008, winning First Prize.
To celebrate the reformation as North Skelton a reunion concert was held in February 2009 at Skelton Church. We were very pleased to welcome a number of former players who joined together with the current band to play some of the old and new favourites. The Band are now looking forward to new concerts and contest challenges.
In 2009 Tim took the band to 2nd place at the North of England Area contest (third section) and 2nd place in the National Finals.
The following year the band would come 4th at the North of England Area contest and part company once more with it's conductor Tim Oldroyd. Rob Illsey would briefly take over the role as conductor guiding the band to 1st place at the Ripon entertainment contest.
From late 2010 to 2013 the band went through a difficult spell where player numbers were low. Langbaurgh owe great deal to it's conductor through these difficult times, Mr. Derek Warley who kept the exisiting players motivated.
