    The Harrogate Band is set to appear on BBC television’s ‘Escape to the Country’ programme this coming Friday.

    Harrogate will appear on the BBC One show at 2.15pm when they provide music in the town's Valley Gardens before being interviewed by presenter Aled Jones drawing on the theme of the town as a place where people ‘took the waters’.

    Linking the current modern brass band to the original Harrogate Temperance Band founded in the 1890’s, the show cheekily filmed current members enjoying certain liquid refreshments in nearby Hales Bar - something original members of the Temperance Band would have frowned on!
