SILSDEN Proms on the Farm was music to the ears of Manorlands.

The Oxenhope Sue Ryder hospice has received a cheque for £3,300, part of the proceeds from the event.

Money raised through the annual Proms is split between Manorlands and Silsden Methodist Church.

Hundreds of people braved downpours to take part in this year's event, held on the town's riverside field in July.

There were performances from soloists Sarah Halstead and April Elizabeth, The 1960 Four and Proms debutant the Hot Aire concert band, and a Last Night of the Proms-style flag-waving finale was once again led by Tewit Silver Band.

A charity raffle and auction were also held.

Lead organiser William Jowitt says: "A huge 'thank you' goes to all those who came out in the rain to support Silsden Proms on the Farm this year – everyone seemed to enjoy themselves, despite the weather!

"We couldn’t raise these funds without the support of local people, businesses and organisations that give their time or money to help make the event such a big success.

"We are already looking forward to next year’s Proms, which will be on Saturday, July 20. Hopefully it will be a much drier occasion!"
