2019 Yorkshire Regional Champion, the Brighouse & Rastrick Band is regarded by many as the best and most consistent ‘public subscription band’ in the world. The band was formed over 130 years ago through public donations given by the townsfolk of the adjacent villages of Brighouse and Rastrick that face each other across the River Calder in West Yorkshire. With Dr David Thornton as Musical Director, the band has attracted a formidable reputation for highly entertaining concerts. Today, it still continues to be supported through public subscriptions and its own fundraising efforts.

This concert is part of the Leeds Best of Brass 2019/20 series.
