After a busy summer for the Yorkshire Imps, we have welcomed some excellent players to the band to strengthen the band even further.
We would like to welcome Christopher Newbery on Solo Tenor Horn. He has moved from 2nd section band, Barnsley Brass and has fitted in well after his great debut performance at Doc Martins.
We would also like to welcome Smain Mokrane on Assistant Principal Cornet. Smain has come to Imps from EYMS as is a great addition to our Solo Cornet section, along with recent signing Andy Hunt from Skelmanthorpe.
Another addition to the line-up is Bob Morton on Solo Baritone. Bob has played with the band before and has kindly accepted the Solo Baritone position. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Ea Maersk for her hard work and excellent playing with the band and wish her every success and happiness.
Imps have strengthened the band immensely over the past year and are looking to fill the line-up. If you wish to be a part of the Yorkshire Imperial Brass Band then contact us through our contact form page. We are accepting applications for the following seats:
– Repiano Cornet
– 2nd Baritone
If you would like to watch Imps perform, you can hear the excellent new signings along with the rest of the Imps team at the following upcoming concerts:
After the success of the joint concert last year in aid of Help the Heroes, the Yorkshire Imps and Military Wives will be teaming up again in a remembrance concert at a new concert venue – Trinity Church, Ossett. The concert will be held on Saturday 7th November and will begin at 19.30pm
The Trinity Church is a beautiful Grade II* listed building, built from Yorkshire Stone and is home to fabulous stained glass work that will be on show on the evening. Trinity Church is one of only three churches in the UK who can ring a peal of 14 bells – IMPressive.
The band is honoured to be sharing the stage again with the Military Wives Choir (York). Founded in September 2013, following the success of the first Military Wives’ Choir under their inspirational conductor Gareth Malone, the York Choir helps women share the enjoyment and pride that comes from singing together.
The concert will be touch emotions, and we will remember all of those who have fought and died for Queen and for Country.
Buy Your Tickets
Tickets are reasonable priced at £10 for Adults and £8 for concessions. You can buy tickets online here and we will announce when tickets will go on sale from the church and another venue.
Five players from the Yorkshire Imperial Urquhart Travel Band will be making an escape bid with a difference…
Five intrepid players from the Yorkshire Imperial Urquhart Travel Band will be hoping take a trip with death in a bid to help raise funds for new uniforms.
Great Escape Banger Rally
The players will be taking part in the forthcoming ‘Great Escape Banger Rally’, which lasts for three days, starting in Koblenz in Germany, via Colditz Catle near Dresden, Poland and the Czech Republic, before finishing in Munich – a round trip from their home base near Leeds of around over 2000 miles!
They’ll be taking part in two cars – although one is a wonderful old hearse (minus passenger) which has been kindly donated by Brian Halliwell, owner of R Banks Funeral Services of Wigan.
Sleep in the back
It’s a great way to raise funds for the band – and our thanks go to Brian for being so supportive in such a great way.
It’s a sure fire way for us to get noticed – although we don’t think we will sleep in the back on the way. It’s big enough for a few instruments so we can keep out lips in though!

The Yorkshire Imps is at the minute very busy rehearsing for next weekends Dr. Martins contest in Yarm. The program is a march, a solo and a test piece, a lot of work for the band.
After the contest, the band is not going to have a quiet autumn. Less than a month after the contest the band will take part in a concert at Unity Works in Wakefield with the title: A Night of Memories. The program consists of Vera Lynn classics and other hits from that period to celebrate the 70 year anniversary of the 2nd World War liberation.
The songs will be performed by Iben Mærsk from The Royal Northern College of Music.
It is going to be a fantastic night with a great band and a great singer.
