Leeds nostalgia: Children played medieval concert instruments in 1974

Have your say

Harrogate, 1974: Home-made mediaeval musical instruments were amongst those played by a group of Harrogate children taking part in a Youth Week being staged at Harrogate Theatre.

Pupils of the Western County Primary School, played music of centuries ago in a concert. They played several crumhorns - medieval wind instruments which look like inverted walking sticks made by music teacher John Whone.

Christopher Bostock, director of Harrogate Theatre for Youth, said: “It is intended that by giving young people the opportunity to use the theatre for their own enterprises.”
