A Big Thank You!

Christmas is always a particularly busy time for the band with traditional Christmas Concerts and the small group carolling sessions that started with various Lights Nights at the end of November.

Carolling is important to us as a means of spreading the Christmas message, helping get everyone into the festive mood and raising much needed funds to help with the everyday running costs of the band.

We are therefore grateful to all of the organisations and businesses that engaged us or allowed us to play on their premises or for their events this year, to our friends and supporters who helped out with collecting, and to the countless members of the public who have been particularly generous this year.

Organisations and businesses that we would like to thank include:

  • Princes Quay (Santa Parade)
  • Skirlaugh Parish Council 
  • Hessle Town Council
  • Coletta and Tyson
  • Sledmere House
  • St. Stephens, Hull
  • Paragon Interchange, Hull
  • Hull Street Food Night
  • South Holderness Technology College
  • Beverley Festival of Christmas
  • Tesco Beverley
  • Tesco Hornsea
  • Asda Bilton
  • Asda Kingswood

Wishing Everyone a Very Happy Christmas and a Peaceful New Year.
