The Concert on the Hill returns after a gap of four years in memory of two remarkable individuals Steve Metcalfe and Dave Roebuck.
Huddersfield Laund Hill Community Club is hosting Concert on the Hill Reloaded on Saturday July 1.
Much-loved and respected club members Steve and Dave, who both recently passed away, were the visionary founders of the very first Concert on the Hill back in 1999.
Together with Neil Jowett from Lindley Brass Band, they embarked on a journey that has brought joy and music to the local community for over two decades.
Richard Spychalski, a prominent figure at the club, said: “This special occasion is not only to celebrate their contributions but also to express our heartfelt gratitude for everything they did for the club throughout the years.
“Their dedication, passion and unwavering support have shaped the club into what it is today.
“For those who have attended Concert on the Hill in previous years, you will find a sense of familiarity as we feature some beloved acts, including the well-known Lindley Brass Band and the mesmerising Huddersfield Choral Youth Choir.
“However, we are thrilled to announce several exciting additions to this year’s line-up. Joining us for the first time are the Huddersfield Community Gospel Choir, Huddersfield Rock Choir, the electrifying band Knuckle Fuzz, and the incredibly talented Nicola Mills.
“We are confident that the range of performances will captivate and entertain you throughout the event.”
Huddersfield Laund Hill is a community club dedicated to promoting sports and community activities and Richard added: “The club has undergone numerous transformations in recent years, evolving from its roots as the old Huddersfield YMCA to its current form.
“As you witness the ongoing developments on site, it is evident that progress is being made at an impressive pace.
“We sincerely hope that our entire community can benefit from the club, engaging in various activities and making it a true hub for all. We really do want it to become a club for the community.”
Concert on the Hill 2023 promises to be a day filled with music, remembrance and a spirit of togetherness.
Gates open at 3pm and the first act starts at 4pm. Tickets are £15 for adults, under-15s £5 and under-5s free.
