A surprise visit by Prime Minister Rishi Sunak to Northallerton Silver Band's Autumn Concert, in All Saints Church, Northallerton, added a sense of prestige to the event.

The concert's theme, "Around the World", was well executed, taking the audience on a musical journey.

The repertoire, which included pieces including The Sound of Music, Macarthur Park, and The Best of Bond, showcased the band's versatility and talent.
