The sun is out, everyone – absolutely everyone – has been measured up for a bigger jacket …. it can only mean Dobcross Youth Band are ready to perform for our local community again!
All the players are delighted and excited to be playing in front of audiences once more, with appearances booked at the Great Saddleworth Get Together at the White Hart, Lydgate, on Saturday 26 June and Uppermill’s Yorkshire Day celebrations on Sunday 1 August.
The Get Together is a family fun day with lots of local businesses, organizations and charities giving their time to make it a day to remember, while Yorkshire Day brings together all sorts of attraction to celebrate everything White Rose.
The youngsters have been preparing with regular face to face rehearsals at Dobcross Band Club on Tuesdays and Fridays. The band have good quality instruments available to borrow for any youngsters aged six and over who would like to learn to play and have fun with friends.
