Yorkshire Volunteers Brass Christmas Concert

Thursday 11th December 2014

7.00pm (Doors open at 6.30pm)

 

Join the Merchant Adventurers' Hall in celebrating the festive period with a concert by the renowned Yorkshire Volunteers Brass Ensemble. The performance will included a mix of Christmas, First World War Music plus songs from the shows and movies in the stunning surroundings of the Hall.

This one off concert will have added significance as during the Christmas 1914, the Hall was used as a billet for the Leeds Rifles 1/7th West Yorkshire Regiment. Many of those quartered at the Hall were members of the Regimental Band, the predecessors of the current Yorkshire Volunteers brass band. The young men of "Kitchener's Army" as they were known would stay at the Hall until the spring of 1915 before moving to the Front and taking part in some of the most notorious battles of the war including the Somme.

The concert will be an uplifting celebration of the people who celebrated Christmas at the Hall 100 years ago and the Hall's small role in a global conflict.

Festive refreshments will be available at the interval for a small charge.

 

Tickets: £10.00 (no concessions). Tickets will go on sale from Monday 27th October 2014.

Tickets can be purchased in person from the Hall or by phone (Monday to Friday: 9.00am to 5.00pm) on 01904 654818.
