A movie weekend

As part of our commitment to all-things Yorkshire we sponsor Huddersfield Philharmonic Orchestra and last weekend saw their excellent Family Movie Matinee, hosted by the (according to my wife) “dreamy” Robert Powell. The event was great fun for all and was a lovely way to wile away a Sunday afternoon listening to the best from John Williams, Quincy Jones and others. The programme included the 20th Century Fox Fanfare, Tara’s Theme from ‘Gone with the Wind’, ‘The Big Country’, ‘Somewhere over the Rainbow’, ‘West Side Story’, ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’, ‘Bond, James Bond’, ‘Psycho’, ‘Superman’, ‘Harry Potter’, ‘The Sound of Music’, ‘633 Squadron / Dambusters’, ‘The Italian Job’, ‘My Fair Lady’, ‘Thunderbirds are Go’, ‘Looney Tunes’ and ‘Star Wars’.

If you get the chance to visit the Hudds Phil (as it is known locally) then do so; it’s the oldest continuously playing orchestra in the world.
