A lovely, friendly concert in this small church on the Harrogate side of Leeds. It's comfortable, the people are really nice and there's a balcony if you like looking down on the players to see what they're up to.
Book yourself in and they'll talk you in to a wonderful pie and pea supper in the church hall afterwards. You'll love it. It's a fine Yorkshire tradition. We'll be playing a range of entertaining brass band music including marches, hymn tunes, overtures, jazz, big band and a few solos featuring different players in the Band.
The money raised will support the ministry of the church. For more information on the church please click here
