Leigh said: “I’m delighted to be back with the Band and am looking forward to once again working with such a hard working team. They perform at so many prestigious events and it will be a pleasure to team up with them once more”
Band manager Simon Davies commented “it’s great to welcome Leigh back to the Band. We had so much success under his baton and we are sure the relationship will prove to be successful once again. I would like to thank our outgoing conductor, Jack Capstaff for his work with the band over the last eighteen months, and wish him well on his appointment at Yorkshire Imps.
