We are very much looking forward to celebrating 30 years of WOW and are marking this occasion by holding a Come and Play Day where we invite fellow musicians to join us for a day of music-making.

Please do get in touch if you would like to be part of this event.

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!

I don't think we can quite believe our luck! With showers forecast all afternoon we've managed to play our full set at New Farnley with only the odd drop of rain falling.

We'd like to thank everyone who came to listen this afternoon and for those who offered us their hospitality.

In particular we would like to thank Adam who did a sterling job covering for our regular conductor! Thank you!
