We've enjoyed collaborating with Huddersfield & Ripponden Brass Band and Wakefield Big Band at our recent events "Strike Up the Band" and "Family Fun Afternoon".

The first event was a traditional concert. The audience were seated in a relaxed cafe style setting and were able to enjoy drinks and snacks whilst they were entertained first by Huddersfield & Ripponden Brass Band and then by us.

The Family Fun Afternoon was also a relaxed event and certainly lived up to its name of Family Fun. We had crafts and face painting for the children and they were also invited to have a go on some instruments which they seemd to enjoy! They got the chance to play their "solos" with Wakefield Big Band. We also had a cake stall, refreshments and a raffle.

We look forward to working with these musicians at some time in the future!
