Members of Hebden Bridge Junior Band held their annual Autumn Festival on Saturday.

At the special practice in the Arts Centre on Holme Street, young musicians were treated to a whole host of seasonal treats whilst they brushed up on their performances.

The event is an opportunity to treat the band members but also to show off their music to the public, to attract new members and to raise money for running costs.

Three band members had further cause for celebration: Macy Broadband, Holly Bunzl and Cyres Battiwalla. They were awarded their band ties signifying their progress up the band chain from B band to A band: from beginners to more advanced musicians.

They were presented their ties by Musical Director Neil Robinson.

The band are fresh from a tour of Poland in August, where they performed numerous times in Krakow Main Square.
