HAWORTH band is following up its busy summer with concerts in Keighley and Addingham this autumn.

This month the musicians played at Oxenhope Station to welcome in a golden wedding anniversary couple and their family who were holding celebrations on the Worth Valley Railway.

Band spokesman Heather Haykin said: “It was a much-appreciated surprise for the guests. This followed a performance during the summer to a large and appreciative audience at Malham Show.”

Earlier this month the band assembled in rain at Morrisons in Keighley to help the supermarket celebrate the company’s 50th anniversary.

The next concert for Haworth Band will be at Mount Hermon Chapel in Addingham, on Saturday September 22 at 7pm, when it will present a Last Night of the Proms concert.

Proceeds of the concert, organised by band and chapel member Sylvia Somers, will be donated to Manorlands. Tickets are on sale on the door.

Heather said the band recently moved into a new bandroom at the Village Hall in Haworth.

She said: “As a thank you to the Village Committee for providing the new room, a Brass and Voices concert has been arranged at Haworth Village Hall on Butt Lane on September 29 at 7.30pm.

“The band will be joined by the Cononley Singers, under the baton of Tony Hamilton. A licensed bar will be available in addition to tea and biscuits.”

Tickets costing £5 will be on sale on the door by visiting webuytickets.

In July, the band was filmed by Channel 4 performing Kate Bush’s 1970s song Wuthering Heights as part of the 200th anniversary of the birth of the novel’s writer Emily Bronte.

The performance is due to be broadcast on TV this autumn. Wuthering Heights was specially arranged for brass band by Steve Williams, the band’s musical director.
