On Saturday 20th May, 70 people attended a Concert at Norristhorpe URC by The Clifton and Lightcliffe ‘B’ Brass Band. Those attending were entertained through a varied programme of music to appeal to a wide range of taste. Rev Chris Wood, retired minister and member, tells more….
The programme consisted of such favourites as a Mary Poppins Medley from the original film; Men of Harlech, Baggy Trousers; American Trilogy; Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, Chariots of Fire; Te Deum; I will Follow Him; Highland Cathedral, and, of course the icing on the cake, Bless this House in memory of the late Mary Broomhead, a faithful Elder for many years at the Chapel.
It was clear from the response throughout, and especially at the end, that the audience thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon, and were soon shouting for an encore at the end, with the Band duly obliging by offering ‘Scotland the Brave’.
A wonderful £340.00 was raised through ticket sales, and this has been divided equally between the Band and Christian Aid, the latter because this particular Saturday saw the culmination of Christian Aid Week.
All in all, a great afternoon was had by all who went; so much so that the Band has already been booked again for a Christmas Concert on 2nd December!
