The Lindley Band is immensely proud of its long association with Neil, as a player, Musical Director, Trustee, and Band President. In celebration of his life, the band is presenting a massed band concert in fond memory of Neil, featuring some of his favourite music.

This invitation, to join us either on stage or in the audience, is extended to any current or past players from Lindley Band, and to other friends of Neil’s from his esteemed banding career outside 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.
