I am helping to arrange the Open University Degree ceremony due to take place in the Harrogate International Centre on Friday 19th May and we require a brass band. The ceremony commences at 14:00 but the band may be required to attend earlier for a rehearsal (11:00).
14:00 – 14:30 (pre ceremony musical programme)
16:00 – 16:30 (after the ceremony, recession)
The band would be able to play their own programme of music, in agreement with the ceremony manager.
There would be a green room available to use before and after the ceremony for storage etc. and we would provide tea, coffee and a light sandwich lunch.
If there is anything further you need to know please do not hesitate to get in touch. If you could let me know whether there might be a band available and a quote for the cost of hiring that would be great.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Firstly I have looked high and low for a laid back guitarist/vocalist for our festival inspired wedding next year, I came across your profile today on poptop and I so so hope your free on our date as what you play is absolutely perfect and you sound amazing.
Our wedding is being held on our friends farm in Burnsall, North Yorkshire on Saturday 28th May 2016. We are having a really laid back day, with our ceremony at 1pm with then field games, lots of beer, lots of wine, a ton of BBQ and loads of laughter after. I was hoping you would play before during and after the ceremony? Probably a good four hours of relaxing, chilled gorgeous music....
We will supply you with all the BBQ and beer you fancy on the day.
Really looking forward to your response.

wedding at Kettlesing Village Hall, North Yorkshire.
Looking for a band for the evening time - approx 7.30 until midnight.
You came recommended from a friend!
Just after rough idea of prices also.
Indoors: a village hall with a stage.
I am looking for a brass band who could play numbers like Hackney colliary band, hot 8 brass band ETC.
The village hall is located in Hartington in the Peak District between Buxton and Matlock.
A massive thank you to the band who were amazing! They were the cherry on the top of our day, and helped make it even more memorable. We had so much fun and the bride spent the entire time they were there dancing to every song. Everyone we've spoken to since the day has commented on how brilliant they were, and the energy and fun they gave to the evening was just fantastic. We also want to thank them for being so accommodating when they arrived, as there was a slight issue with the stage which meant they started later than we originally thought. This did not seem to cause them any issue, and they were incredibly professional and generally awesome. We'll be recommending them to everyone, and we're already looking for an excuse to hire them again. We think they rock! Our sincere thanks and appreciation to all of them.
“My husband and I booked Ariella Strings to play at our wedding in May of this year at Cowley Manor in the Cotswolds. We decided to have 3 musicians and it was the best decision we made. Both Cheryl and John were a delight to deal with and truly made our day incredibly special. We had requested an arrangement of a particular song we both loved for when we were signing the register and this brought a tear to everyone’s eye. Every guest commented on how impressed they were with the music and it was amazing to see the musicians follow us outside when the sun came out. We would not hesitate in recommending Ariella Strings to anyone for any event as they are extremely professional and talented.”
