Over the last 2 years it’s been an honour working with such a great production.

Dominic Furby, Chief Officer of BHT, said: “The recent Inspire event at Huddersfield Town Hall brought together a diverse array of charities and schools, creating a truly inspiring experience for all involved. For many attendees, it was their first time witnessing an orchestral performance. The educational elements ignited a newfound love for music, highlighting the well-documented connection between music and improved mental health. This impact was evident at the recent Inspire event, where the audience left feeling elated.”

Paradox Orchestra has an open invite to any local charity or education hub who would like to get involved in their next Inspire Days, which will be hosted on 13 July at 2pm at Huddersfield Town Hall please email [email protected] to sign up.

The event is in partnership with Kirklees Town Halls.

Dianne Watkinson, Audience Development Manager at Kirklees Council, said: “We’re delighted that Angie’s Disco Orchestra once again celebrates the new partnership between Paradox Orchestra and Kirklees Town Halls following the standing ovation success of 50 Years of Pink Floyd in May. Our aim with this collaboration is to bring a new dimension to our Huddersfield Town Hall programme, welcoming new and diverse audiences of all ages into our stunning venue – many of whom may not have stepped inside before.”

She added: “We’re breaking with convention with Angie’s Disco to create an unprecedented ‘summer festival-vibe’ - without having to worry about the weather. Many of our guests enjoy a seated performance, but we know many more love to get up and boogie, so we’re creating dance-floor spaces for this event offering the best of both worlds. We’re really hoping people from around Kirklees and beyond will support this event and we’re proud to be offering free tickets for under 18s accompanied by an adult and a special price for under 25s too.”
