Royal Hall, Harrogate

The West Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service Band, is Yorkshire's premier “Military Style” Concert band and Marching band. We're based in Birkenshaw, Bradford, West Yorkshire and are proud to represent one of the national Emergency Services. The band boasts some 30+ volunteer musicians, from all walks of life and are one of just four “Military Style” Fire Service bands in the country.

The Band is available to perform at a variety of occasions with any of our different ensembles. We play a vast repertoire of music including military classics, pop, selections from the stage and screen, and Last Night of the Proms. Often taking part at prestigious events all over the world, the band is as comfortable at local galas as it is at performing ceremonial duties for Senior members of The Royal Family.

The band plays at all official Fire Service functions. Not withstanding this, it is free to play whenever and wherever its services are required.
