A BRASS band which always sells out on its annual visit to the Stephen Joseph Theatre is back this weekend.

The Hammonds Saltaire Band, previously known as the Yorkshire Building Society Band, can be seen at 7.30pm Saturday and 3pm Sunday.

Conducted by musical director Morgan Griffiths, the ensemble will play a wide variety of music with selections from traditional brass-band music to classical and modern film themes. The band has been one of the most successful contesting brass bands of the last 20 years.

It has also been among the most innovative with its acclaimed CDs and concert projects, created through close collaboration between band, conductor and composer.
