Within a twelve month period, the two bands will both have represented their country at the European Brass Band Championships, Elland Youth last Spring in Malmo and B&R compete next May in Palanga, Lithuania.

But their feet will be firmly routed on home soil when they meet in Brighouse next month, with ESYB moving onto play at Halifax Minster that same evening whilst B&R remain at Central Methodist for their sellout 7.15pm performance, each one conducted by Resident Musical Director, Ian McElligott.

Tickets are available direct from the band on 01484 718835 or in person at the counter of Ryecorn Wholefoods, Bethel Street, Brighouse.
