Sunday 25th March, 7.30 p.m. Harrogate International Centre Box Office: 0845 130 8840 The bands of Harrogate will present a concert this Sunday to raise money for the restoration of the town's famous Royal Hall - one of the finest concert halls in the north of England. The hall is due to re-open early in 2008 following a total renovation which will cost over 8 million pounds, and which will provide a fantastic concert (and contest?) venue for local groups and visiting performers. Bands taking part in this concert are: Harrogate Area Youth Band Knaresborough Silver Band White Rose Concert Band Tewit Youth Band The Harrogate Band Each group will present a short programme of music with the emphasis very much on entertainment, and there will be a very wide variety of styles on offer. Please support the concert if you can - all money raised will be used to name a seat in honour of Leighton Rich (the founder of Tewit Youth Band) who died last year, and to complete a new bar area - a cause well worth supporting! I hope that you are able to join us for what promises to be a fantastic evening of music making! David PS - this concert will take place in the hall where the National Finals will be held in September - if you would like to hear a range of bands playing in this distinctive acoustic you may have further reason to join us for the evening!!!
