Leeds Town Hall houses a brassy bash this May.

Featuring Black Dyke Band and guests including Yorkshire Youth, Armthorpe Elmfield, Tewit Youth, Blackley, Delph, Kirton and Trentham Bands, this is a bumper brass line up headlined by the current British Open and National Champion, returning to Leeds for a gala concert.

Brass is big news these days, with many bands tackling anything from hip hop and Michael Jackson to create a wonderfully jarring, playful vibe - but here you can expect slightly less leftfield choices such as 'What a Wonderful World' and 'Sing Sing Sing'.
