On Saturday we were delighted to be joined by friends old and new to celebrate our 30th anniversary!

We were really pleased that the band's founder, Catherine Clarke, was able to join us for part of the day!

Our time was spent rehearsing 6 pieces of music which we then performed to family and friends at the end of the day. We began with Venus followed by Intermezzo from Cavalleria Rusticana, Porgy and Bess, Love Theme from The Godfather, and the march from A Moorside Suite before finishing by taking things back to where we started with Eighties Flashback!

A wonderful time was had by all!

We'd like to say a big "Thank You" to everyone who helped to make the day such a success and to those who were unable to come due to illness we'd like to say "Get Well Soon"!

Here's to the next 30 years!

Below is a photograph from the day, but there are many more on Facebook if you would like to have a look.

For anyone who plays in a wind or brass band this is a busy time of year!

The last two weekends have seen teams from the band carolling at Colton Methodist Church and Wakefield Westgate Railway Station.

This Saturday we will have a team playing at Sainsbury's - Trinity Walk.

If you're shopping in Sainsbury's please don't be afraid to ask for your favourite carol. We will be happy to play it for you!
