The North Wolds Lions Club recently held its annual Brass Band Concert at Burton Agnes Hall. The theme of this year’s concert was a celebration of 100 years since the formation of the Royal Air Force.

The audience enjoyed a stirring first half of military music including the Dam Busters, 633 Squadron , Royal Air Force March and the battle of Britain March. The second half of the evening saw a rousing rendering of the Last Night of the Proms and more WW1 songs.
