Future Events


 

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.

Remembrance Day Service and Parade

St. Andrew's Church, Ferrybridge

Sunday 10th November 2019

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 ...
