AN evocative show marking the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War will see the Black Dyke Band take to the stage at a Teesside school.

The concert, which takes place at Yarm School’s Princess Alexandra Auditorium, will see members of the local community join singers from the school and Yarm Choral Society perform Karl Jenkin’s "Armed Man" Mass.

David Dunn, Headmaster at Yarm School, said: “Yarm School is very proud to present a concert with Black Dyke Band, which is heralded as one of the finest bands in the world. Our business partners enable us to attract the very best performers to our superb new Auditorium.”

The event, on Saturday, November 8, is being sponsored by Darlington Building Society and public relations company Recognition PR.

Sheena Hunter, District Manager at Darlington Building Society, said: “Darlington Building Society prides itself on ‘looking after local interests’ and we were pleased to be able to support this prestigious event.

“I hope that in the future Darlington Building Society and Yarm School can collaborate on other projects to bring added value to both organisations.”

Tickets priced £15 for adults and £10 for children are available online at, Yarm School, Strickland & Holt and Darlington Building Society, Yarm.
