Saturday 28th OctoberConcert for Christian Aid - Holy Trinity Church, Kirkby Road, Ripon, HG4 2EY, 7.30pm

HTrinityR Now in its 9th year come along to the delightful city of Ripon and let us entertain you with an evening of exciting, beautiful and fascinating music. And, it's all for a great cause, raising money for Christian Aid.

Holy Trinity has good modern facilities and probably the best acoustic in which to listen to the band. It's also nice and warm with comfortable seats!

Acts of Remembrance - Harrogate

We will be taking part in two acts of Remembrance.

Harrogate Cenotaph: 10:15am - We will be marching with the Tewit Youth Band in the parade and playing music at the cenotaph for the civic act of Remembrance.

Stonefall Cemetery: 12:15pm - We will be taking part in the ceremony hosted by the Rotary Club at the Commonwealth War Graves Cemetery which has 1010 servicemen who were mainly airmen.

It's a very calm, reflective and peaceful place. Looking at the row upon row of graves makes you think and reflect on the sacrifice people made for peace in Europe, especially those who weren't even from these isles.
