New Book on the History of Lindley Band

New Book on the History of Lindley Band

Please check out this book about Lindley band, written by our cornet player and band secretary Paul Harrison. It provides a detailed history of the band alongside descriptions of the part played by the band in the social workings of the surrounding areas, from the early 19th century to the present day.
The book will be available at Lindley Band Concerts, via paulcharrison1@gmail.com and at the Children’s Bookshop, Lindley. You could also message our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/lindleyband
Christmas Concert and New Signings at Lindley.

Christmas Concert and New Signings at Lindley.

Last night Lindley band held a fantastic Christmas concert at St Peter’s church (masks for all except when playing). A massive thank you to all who played, attended or helped in anyway.

The evening saw the first appearance of Tower Brass Community Band and also was the debut concert for 3 of Lindley Band’s new signings Sophie Stones, Neil Holmes and Victoria Kenworthy Nash.

Brass bands are a new venture for Sophie, who joins on flugel, having previously played trumpet in Hull Philharmonic and Slaithwaite Philharmonic orchestras. She also currently sings soprano with Huddersfield Choral Society.

Neil Holmes joins on 2nd Euphonium after a lengthy break from playing. This is his third stint at Lindley, and he is looking forward to adding to his many great memories of playing with the band.

We are delighted to welcome Victoria on horn. She has moved to Lindley from the Tyldesley Band. Victoria started her banding in Linthwaite, so has gone full circle by joining Lindley Band in Huddersfield.
