In order to stay at home as much as possible and to control the virus and save lives; our concerts have been cancelled through to the end of July, as well as the remainder of the Summer Bands in Leeds Parks 2020 series. This enables us to protect the safety and well-being of our audiences and staff as we manage the ongoing impact of COVID-19 in Leeds. 

 
Support Leeds Town Hall

The loss of ticket sales for cancelled events during these unprecedented times is of great concern, particularly as we look to the future and the redevelopment plans for Leeds Town Hall. With this in mind, we ask if you would consider making a donation to help sustain Leeds Town Hall – perhaps the most iconic and best loved building in the city, and one of such historic value to the people of Leeds and beyond. If preferred, ticket holders can choose to add credit to their account to use on a future performance. Refunds (minus the booking fee) are also available.

If you have bought tickets to any of our events a member of our Box Office team will be in touch with you shortly. If you have any queries please contact: boxoffice@leeds.gov.uk and allow our team to either respond via email or call you back. If that’s not possible, please call the team on 0113 376 0318 (Mon-Fri between 10am and 4pm). There may be a short wait as our Box Office team are now working remotely. Voicemail messages will be collected on a regular basis and someone will get back to you at the earliest opportunity. Please be assured that you will be contacted either by email, telephone or post. We won’t forget you.

Until it is safe to welcome audiences back to our events we’ll continue to share content on our website and social media channels, where we’ll also keep you informed of any changes and their implications as soon as we can.

Thank you so much for your understanding and continued support during these difficult times. Keep safe and well.

With kind regards
Leeds Arts Events & Venues Team

Black Dyke Band brings Brass Favourites to Morley

One of the oldest and best-known brass bands in the world, Black Dyke Band brings Big Band favourites to Morley Town Hall on Saturday 9 February as part of the prestigious Leeds Best of Brass 2018/19 series. 

Under the baton of Guest Conductor Professor Peter Graham, Black Dyke Band will perform Big Band favourites and movie classics including What a Wonderful World, Song of the Volga Boatmen, Soul Bossa Nova from the Austin Powers’ films, I Will Follow Him from Sister Act and the main theme tune from Mission Impossible. The band will also perform Mantia’s stunning Endearing Young Charms featuring a euphonium solo by Dan Thomas, Kaye’s lively march Queensbury and Shine as the Light composed by tonight’s conductor, Professor Peter Graham.  

The most successful contesting band in the world, Black Dyke Band recently won the 2018 Yorkshire Regional Championship, a title it has claimed 22 times. The band has always been at the forefront of brass band activity, making one of the earliest brass band recordings in 1904 and embarking on a five month tour of Canada and the United States in 1906. Black Dyke has over 350 recordings to its name and has provided background music for television and film. From its very earliest days Black Dyke Band has always encouraged young people to enjoy music at the highest level; in 2006, under the guidance of Nicholas Childs, the band formed the Yorkshire Youth Brass Band.

Tonight’s conductor, Professor Peter Graham was born in Lanarkshire, Scotland and is a leading figure amongst contemporary brass band composers. He studied at the University of Edinburgh and then undertook postgraduate studies with Edward Gregson at Goldsmiths College, University of London. He holds a PhD in composition. He has worked regularly as an arranger for BBC Television and Radio and has specialised in composition for brass band. His music for wind and concert band has been recorded and performed by many of the world’s leading ensembles, including the Tokyo Kosei Wind Orchestra and the Royal Norwegian Navy Band.  
 
There's nothing more heart-warming than an evening of brass band music with tea, coffee and cakes at the interval so don’t miss out! Tickets for the Black Dyke Band at Morley Town Hall on Saturday 9 February are priced at £14.50 (£12.50 concessions) and can be purchased from the Box Office on 0113 376 0318 or book online
