OUO at Bingley Arts Centre September 2018

We had a fantastic evening with Bradford Accordion Band, Bazzmatazz, Sisters Of Serbia and many other acts at Bingley Arts Centre on 29th September 2018. The evening was organised brilliantly by Anita, who leads the Bradford Accordion Band. It was so much fun to play with the band on Rivers Of Babylon too. The proceeds from the evening all went to Manorlands Hospice. Thanks to all who came to play and sing a long with us. Thanks to JOHN SARGEANT from THE IMAGE STUDIO for the photos 🙂
