The world-renowned Band of the Brigade of Gurkhas will return to play in Leyburn later this month.

The concert, at The Garden Rooms at Tennants, Leyburn, on Monday, November 20 at 6pm, will include a lively mix of Western and Nepali music, a selection of rousing military tunes and the famous Gurkha pipers.

All proceeds from the concert will go towards the work of The Gurkha Welfare Trust, which provides vital support to Gurkha veterans, their families and communities in Nepal.

A spokesperson for the trust said: "Situated in one of the most seismically active areas on Earth, Nepal is at risk of a severe earthquake at any time. This is why this year’s concert will be raising funds to provide at least one Gurkha veteran or widow with an earthquake-resilient home to give them the security and shelter they deserve.

"In 2015, the earthquake that devastated so many lives in Nepal also demonstrated the need for ensuring that our Gurkha veterans and widows had homes they could rely upon to protect them should the worst happen again. Since then we have constructed over 1,500 homes, providing security and enabling them to live in comfort and with dignity in their later years."
