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.

Christmas Lights Switch On

Hillam Town Centre, North Yorkshire

Friday 1st December 2017 - From Dusk (Note date change.)

We have been invited back to the village of Hillam in North Yorkshire again this year, as we have become central to their festive celebrations during the turning on of their Christmas Lights. 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.

Carol Service

St Botolphs Church, Chapel Street, Knottingley WF11 9AN

Sunday 10th December 2017   3:00pm

We will be providing the music for the Carol Service at St. Botolph's Church which promises to be a lovely festive event.


KCB Christmas Concert

Christmas Celebration Concert

Central Methodist Church, Pontefract

Saturday 16th December 2017   3:00pm

Preparations are well underway now and you should put it into your diaries now, as you don't want to double book yourself at this busy time of the year and miss out on the best event of the festive season! The concert this year is being called: Christmas Celebration Concert

KCB Christmas Concert

As always there will be brand new pieces to go alongside some of our regular festive music to help you on your merry way towards the big day itself. There will also be lots of seasonal fun and frolics with plenty of opportunities to join in yourself. We might even have a visit from a very special gent who drives a reindeer driven sleigh, if you're very good!

As in recent years, to help our less mobile audience and avoid conflicts with other events going on at this time of year, we are having an afternoon concert. So no dark night travelling to worry about and you can get home to watch your favourite TV shows that come towards their final at this time of the season.

Ticket price includes seasonal refreshments served during the interval.
Doors will open at 2:15pm for a 3:00pm start.

Advanced tickets are now available. Any remaining will be available on the door.

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