The Band like nothing more than to be performing in front of a live audience. It's what the hard practicing is all about!

Here is a summary of up and coming events in the Band's diary at present. Many events are open to all, and we would really love you to come along and join us. Venues are sometimes free or open air, so if you don't like the idea of stuffy formal occasions, these might just suit you down to the ground. And you won't have to pay for the privilege, either! So if you are in the area on any of the following occasions, you should have no excuse other than to come along and support your friendly local Band.

KCB Patrons Concert

Central Methodist Church, Pontefract

Saturday 21st July 2018   7:30pm

Preparations for this year's Patrons' Concert are under away now. The Patrons' Concert is performed each year, as a way of giving back something to our loyal supports; our Patrons; where we give them the full VIP treatment, providing them with personal invitations, and invite them to join the band for drinks and light refreshments before the concert starts. We always make this an extra special event, to ensure they have a great time. It's the least we can do for their continued support.

Of course, the concert itself is open for everyone to come and enjoy.

The concert itself will start at 7:30pm. Patrons are invited to join us from 6:45pm for drinks and refreshments, before it gets underway, with plenty of chance to meet and chat with many of the band members. VIP tickets will be sent out via the Patrons' Secretary in advance as usual, with an opportunity to reserve seats in your preferred area of the hall.

Tickets
Adults:  -  £8.00
Concessions:  -  £6.00
Children (16 & under):  -  £4.00

Tickets and further information can be obtained by phoning 01977 600524.

Remembrance Day Service and Parade

St. Andrew's Church, Ferrybridge

Sunday 11th November 2018   10:00am

We continue to support St. Andrew's church with their Remembrance Day service as usual this year. Whilst arrangements have yet to be confirmed, this will probably follow the format of previous years, with the Band leading hymns during the Remembrance service and Eucharist, before we move outside to lead the procession from the church to the cenotaph for 11:00am. Here the traditional service of Remembrance will continue with hymns and prayers, and of course the playing of the Last Post.

We shall remember them ...

Despite being a small community, this is one of the best organised events we attend and it is a delight to be a part of the celebrations. There is normally lots going on and the warm mulled wine and mince pies are always welcome. If you are anywhere in the area, you will have a great time so why not pop along and join in the fun.
