Past Engagements


Example of a Concert

Christmas with The Harrogate Band
Christmas Dinner Carols

See also: Stage and Screen, Last Night of the Proms, Brassed Off and Jazz and Swing examples.


A traditional Christmas concert with carols and classic Christmas tunes.

We would provide a singer and a compère who would lead the audience in singing a few carols, if you wanted, in amongst some traditional and modern Christmas tunes.

Serve the audience hot mince pies and mulled wine in the interval to liven the Christmas mood and sit back while the Band entertain and awaken the spirit of Christmas.

Why not have a listen to excerpts from our Christmas CD here featuring Lucy Rhodes, BBC Radio 2 Young Chorister of the Year.

Some examples of the music we play could be:
  • Candlelight Carol
  • Santa Claus is Comin' to Town
  • Sans Day Carol
  • The Snowman
  • White Christmas
  • .... and many more
The Band have plenty of experience of performing this type of concert. We are now regulars at Meanwood Methodist Church in Leeds where we perform for The Oddfellows Christmas Concert, and we have led the annual Firefighters' Charity Christmas Concert at the Royal Hall since 1997.

Christmas Dinner Carols

Why not use the Band for your annual society Christmas dinner entertainment? Book us to play carols in the background before we lead you and your guests in an after dinner singing of traditional Christmas carols. Compèred by our very own santa's little helper, Steve Morland, why not let us help you get in the spirit with a round of "12 Days of Christmas"? The Band have developed this format very successfully with a now regular spot at Pannal Golf Club.
