A Last Night of the Proms-style concert featuring the delights of theatre and film musicals is to be staged in Batley Town Hall next weekend.

The event is being provided once again by the highly-talented musicians from Hammonds Saltaire Brass Band.

The performance, which takes place on Saturday, June 18, will be their ninth annual appearance in the town.

A spokesperson from Kirklees Town Halls said: “Over those years a great bond has built up between music lovers in the town and the band conducted by Morgan Griffiths.

“The band’s choice of music appears to send members of the audience into a regular tizzy.

“With pieces from Another Opening, Another Show, Mack and Mabel, Phantom of the Opera and Anything Goes, the evening seems set to get off to an uproarious start.

“Either side of the interval the band strikes chords with Over the Rainbow, Slaughter on Tenth Avenue, Barnum and South Pacific.

“And as it builds up to the climax the programme extends to Mary Poppins, a Fantasia of British Sea Songs and Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance March as a finale.”

Tickets are priced at £12 adults, £10 concessions and £5 for under-16s.

They can be obtained by phoning Ted Griffiths on 01924 478933 or ringing Kirklees Box Office on 01924 324501.

The concert begins at 7.15pm.
