Leyburn 2021 Band concert cancelled

With the deepest regret, the sold-out 2021 fundraising concert by the Band of the Brigade of Gurkhas in Leyburn this November has been cancelled.

Unfortunately, the Band of the Brigade of Gurkhas are currently overseas as part of a military deployment and, as a result of a positive COVID test, will now be unable to return to the UK in time to perform on the 29 November 2021.

This is the first time in the concert’s 21 year history that the Band have needed to pull out. As I’m sure you will appreciate, as a military band, they are soldiers first and foremost, their service commitments take priority. Sadly for all of us, this means we have no option but to cancel the concert this year.

The cancellation of the concert is not only a huge disappointment it is also a huge blow to our fundraising for the year. As you may know, the funds raised from this event go towards one of our projects in Syange – piping clean water to a village in desperate need.

Having committed to the project we do our best to raise funds elsewhere to ensure the work is completed so that the community can live with dignity.


If you had tickets to the event, please wait to be contacted by your vendor.

Apologies again for this situation which is sadly out of our hands. We do hope to hold a concert again next year and perhaps another earlier on in 2022 – However, with nothing confirmed we are unable to advise on dates yet.
