A POPULAR brass band is performing at Haworth next month.

Slaithwaite Band is playing at Haworth Parish Church on Sunday, May 14, at 7pm.

Admission is free, but donations are invited – with all proceeds going to the Ukraine humanitarian relief effort.

"The band is very successful in raising funds for worthy causes," said a spokesperson.

"We provide outstanding brass band music for audiences of all ages.

"Our programme of popular music aims to lift spirits and provide audiences with a great experience."

The present organisation was formed in 1892 as Slaithwaite Brass and Reed Band, although bands had existed in the village – intermittently – since the early 1800s.

In addition to staging concerts, members play at events and in competitions throughout the year.
