LOCAL band Time Warp, who play classic hits from the fifties, sixties, seventies and later were invited to play at the BBC Country File event at Castle Howard Estate on Sunday, August 18.

The popular four piece band performed a set on the Graze Inn stage in front of a very large crowd.

The four day countryside celebration made its northern debut at the 18th Century Yorkshire country house, a couple of weeks after a similar annual event at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire.

Over 15,000 people attended on the first day at Castle Howard and despite severe traffic tailbacks and bad weather on Friday, the event was a huge success.

The band were pleased to be selected to play their classic hits and all four band members David Manovitch - Lead Vocals and Guitar, Graeme Morrell - Vocals and Guitar, Nick Dyson - Vocals and Bass Guitar and David Knaggs - Drums, thoroughly enjoyed their day.

Records show that the local band have performed 391 gigs at 158 different venues.

The band, which has had various line-ups over many years, are performing for the NSPCC Charity at Kirklands, Main Street, Menston, on Saturday, October 26.

The Halloween Dance, which includes a fish & chip supper, raffle and a bar is an annual event.
