This annual celebration of singing led by a choir formed for the day, under the direction of Margaret Laycock.
Many of the Golcar Lily Day committee join this celebration, which to be all the more special as the group celebrate their 10th year of organising the lily day festivities.
Performers come from all walks of life including dentists, teachers, computer specialists, bankers, who are brought together through a love of music. This year the group will perform live with Huddersfield Wind Band’s euphoric mix of wind and percussion instruments and organisers are looking for local people to join in the fun.
Sue Starr, Chair of The Golcar Lily Day Committee said: “This event was first held in 1905 and was revived after a leave of absence in 2008 and is now in its ninth consecutive year, just one behind lily day itself.
“Each year we invite local residents to join the choir. This year rehearsals will take place tonight and 11 May at 7.30pm at Providence Methodist Church. All are welcome”
