The Yorkshire Imperial DUT band will be performing at the Trinity Church in Ossett as part of their 150th year anniversary celebrations. The concert will be held on Saturday 30th May and will begin at 19.30pm at Trinity Church, Church Street, Ossett, West Yorkshire WF5 9DW.
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 programme, which is designed to appeal to all musical tastes will include John William’s Indiana Jones and Tchaikoavsky’s 1812 Overture. The Imps will also be performing pieces that they will be competing with when they go on tour to compete in a Danish Entertainment Competition later on this year.
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.
After a great start to the year, the Yorkshire Imps are on fine form so this concert is not to be missed!

Last Sunday saw Imps achieve their second respectable result of the year with 5th place at the Yorkshire Area. With only one place behind Brighouse and Rastrick (last years Yorkshire Area Champions).
A busy start to the year proved worthwhile as Imps went away with their best area result since 1998 when they came 5th with Peter Graham’s “Montage”.
Following the danger of relegation which has threatened the band, Imps are again safely in the Championship Section for another year and hope to uphold their reputation at the Spring Festival in May.
Feedback from the adjudicators and Peter Graham on Sunday concluded that Imps gave an impressive effort on stage and delivered a well rounded musical performance. The British Bandsman Magazine who were also in attendance described the band as being “on its best form for years in a really fine show”.

A small contingent of Imps attended this newly formed competition. Alan Fowler, Ginnette Baker, Adrian Nurney and Anne Katrine Lednav were the dream team who performed Gilbert Vinter’s Fancys Knell.

MD Stig Maersk was also in attendance with his quartet. They came a fine fourth place.
Meanwhile, other Imps players played with the University of Huddersfield, who attended the Unibrass competition in Warwick. Unfortunately they were pipped to the post by the University of Manchester.
