AIREBOROUGH LISTENS TO THE BAND

(The report sent to the press follows)

Frank Renton's tenth visit to Yeadon, this time showcasing the Hepworth Band, made Aireborough Rotary Club's October fund-raising event another resounding success.

Although the round of golf, an important ingredient of Frank's annual trip back home to the north, was not his most successful, it still had to be included amongst the flow of anecdotes embellishing his on-stage appearance.

True to form each item on the band's programme received its own informative introduction giving credit to composers and arrangers but all delivered in the conversational and humorous style which entertains audiences both 'live' and on Radio 2.

The Hepworth Band came in for its own share of praise from its conductor, as one of only four Bands which represented Yorkshire at the National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain
