    Well....yes! It looks a most enterprising concert and I hope it succeeds in raising a generous amount for a worthy cause.

    LOL! That's one of the best typos and responses to a typo I've seen!

    Looks like an excellent concert though - shame it's a little too far for me to travel, but all the best with it.

    The last few years concerts have raised £2000-3000+ for Clarence and have been great occasions. YBS were awesome last year under Garry Cutt and we very accomadating in putting together the programme. The year before Hendon Band (Stephen Cobb) came with both David Dawes and Matt Cobb featuring as soloists: they also did their big band set too.

    NH is becoming an established event and hopefully it will continue to be so. It raises money for a worthy cause. This years event will be worth travelling to and maybe you might want to make a weekend of it.

    I believe our friends at World of Brass may be making an appearance too.....

    Can I use the details here for coming events on Clarence's official website (www.clarence.org.uk)? Have they changed in any way?

    Yes, although the venue for the event will now be the Castleford SA Hall on Booth Street, Castleford. This 'new' hall holds 350 people and be better suited to the guests there on the night and the sound/visual requirements.

    Tickets are £7 for Adults - £5 for concessions
