Concert on the Hill, has been staged at the Laund Hill Sports ground for the last 18 years, it is an outdoor event where the great traditions of Yorkshire are brought together an award winning brass band, Lindley Brass Band and two great male voice choirs, Honley and Colne Valley plus the award winning Lindley Junior School Choir. The format is similar to the last night of the proms, complete with a firework spectacular finale.
Every year families from all over Huddersfield and Yorkshire converge on this idyllic sports arena to watch top quality local musicians perform the true British classics of years past, Land of hope and glory, Rule Britannia, God save the Queen. They bring picnics, tables and chairs, gazeboes, even candelabra. The atmosphere is informal and epitomises Yorkshire friendliness, every one wandering about marvelling at the efforts that people have gone to for an evening of classical entertainment.
The spectacle is finished with a dazzling firework display in time to the music. After which many spectators and performers retire to the sports club house for yet more refreshment.
