The Gurkha Welfare Trust is delighted to bring the world-renowned Band of the Brigade of Gurkhas to Leyburn for a fantastic concert.
With previous Gurkha Band concerts being described as “a night at the proms – Gurkha style!”, the evening looks set to be an epic one. The performance will include a lively mix of Western and Nepali music, a selection of rousing military tunes, and feature the famous Kukri Dance.
Proceeds from the concert will go to support the work of The Gurkha Welfare Trust. Funds raised will go towards the refurbishment of Shree Surya Primary School in the remote mountain village of Yang Myang in Nepal.
GWT Community Fundraising Officer Helen Souch comments:
“I am so excited to bring such a unique band here for what promises to be a fantastic event. What’s more, the proceeds raised will all go towards our vital work supporting veterans and their families in Nepal.
We have a long connection with the Brigade of Gurkhas and this is a wonderful opportunity to see the band perform, and at the same time raise funds to support our vital work in Nepal. We hope as many people as possible will come out to this one-night-only event.”
Doors open: 6.00pm
Concert starts: 7.00pm
Raffle tickets, food and drink will be available to purchase before the concert begins. It will also be possible to pre-order drinks in order to collect them during the short interval.
