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.

Darrington Feast & Fayre

Darrington

Saturday 17th June 2017

The band will once again be supporting the Darrington Feast & Fayre, by performing several sessions during the event. There is always lots to see and do at this exciting family event, so do come along and have a great time as well as enjoy your favourite Brass Band.


KCB Patron's Concert

Central Methodist Church, Pontefract

Saturday 8th July 2017  7:30pm

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 under-way, 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.

Patrons will receive their VIP invitations via Lisa as normal. For everyone else, the tickets details are:

  • 8:00 Adults
  • 6:00 Concessions (OAP, unwaged)
  • 2:00 Children (16 and under)

Tickets will be available to order nearer the time, then if there are any remaining tickets they will be available for purchasing at the door on the day. Arrive early to avoid disappointment.

Poppy

Remembrance Day Service and Parade

St. Andrew's Church, Ferrybridge

Sunday 12th November 2017

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 ...

Christmas Lights Switch On

Hillam Town Centre, North Yorkshire

Saturday 2nd December 2017 - From Dusk

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.


Bells

KCB Christmas Concert

Central Methodist Church, Pontefract

Saturday 16th December 2017   3:00pm

As always, this is our main event of the Christmas season. But 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 XMAS Factor

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.

Tickets will be available nearer the time.
