AN event is set to be music to the ears as people enjoy a gradual easing of lockdown restrictions.

Tea on the Square – on Saturday, July 3 – will be Keighley Town Council’s first event of the year.

Old-time music will be performed by Melissa Harper and Pete Jones.

And performing arts school Bolt Academy, with its choir, will entertain.

The free event – at Town Hall Square – will be opened at 1pm by the town mayor, Councillor Julie Adams.

Activities will run until 4pm.

Tea and cake will be available for a donation to the Oxenhope Sue Ryder hospice, Manorlands.

Cllr Adams said: “We are truly excited to be hosting Tea on the Square.

“We hope Keighley will come out for a wonderful afternoon to listen to music and help raise money for a good cause.”

Sue Ryder, like other charities, has been badly hit by the impact of the pandemic.

Many of its fundraising activities were cancelled and its charity shops closed.
