Rothwell Temperance Band is presenting a charity proms concert at Leeds Town Hall.

Led by conductor David Roberts, the band will perform music by William Walton and Edward Elgar along with other proms favourites.

They will be joined on stage by Nicola Rutherford, star of the West End musical Phantom of the Opera, and 200 children from school choirs.

Formed in 1984, the band achieved championship status by 1999, when they performed for the first time at the national finals.

Tickets for the July 4 concert are £12 and £10. Call 0113 2243801 or visit
