Hepworth Band is joining forces with New Mill Male Voice Choir to stage a family-themed concert in Holmfirth Civic Hall on May 29 at 3.00pm to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. You are invited to bring the whole family and your own picnic meal for the event. The bar will also be open for alcohol sales and refreshments.
You can now sit back and enjoy the third of the band's "Classic Brass" free online concerts, which is is now live on YouTube and Facebook.
We couldn't have put this together without the support of Arts Council England, Garfield Weston Foundation and One Community Foundation. Or the expertise of KMJ Recordings, Hype Visual Ltd & Jolly Northerner.
The housebuilder, based in Brockholes, has renewed its sponsorship of Hepworth Band for 2021/22. The money will go towards the general running of the brass band, as well as helping towards the refurbishment of the band room.
Richard Conroy, CEO at Conroy Brook Developments, said: “We are pleased to be able to support Hepworth Band now they are back at rehearsals and performing at concert and contests. We have a long-standing connection with brass bands locally and are proud to continue our support of music making in the Holme Valley.”
John Green, chairman of the band, said: “We rely on generous donations from companies to preserve the tradition and musical excellence of the band which has been achieved and maintained over many years. We’d like to thank Conroy Brook for their continued support which is gratefully received.”
The Band was formed in the village of Hepworth, near Holmfirth, in 1882, making it one of the oldest brass bands in the country. Today, it competes in the Championship Section, making it one of the best bands in the UK.
It has had a proud contesting tradition since its founding, and in recent years, has won a string of prestigious prizes. At the same time, it runs its own concert series every year, supports local charities and other events, including the famous Hepworth Feast, and appears at other venues across the U.K. throughout the year.
The Band relies on generous donations from a number of companies, both national and local, for its continued existence. Since the beginning it has also relied heavily on subscriptions raised from local people, and this tradition continues today.
