Thanks to the support of Halifax Minster all the organisations band’s have been able to rehearse in the Minster both inside and outside, making full use of the wonderful grounds.

“The partnership with the Minster over the past few months has enabled the band to return to music making.

"Music brings such joy to our members, and whilst we’ve continued to make music remotely through recordings and online rehearsals, there is no comparison to live music and

hearing the sound we make together,” said Musical Director, Daniel Brooks.
