'Formed in the 1930's. A group of ladies decided to start their own entertainment programme in Hornsea, because it was difficult to travel to concerts in Hull. Like many social organisations, activities were suspended during World War II, but they were restarted in 1948 ... The society continues to thrive after more than 70 years ... The society are very grateful to the United Reformed Church for storing its Grand Piano.'

‘Started in 1906 and, apart from the years between 1940 and 1943, has been held annually ever since. It has always been a competitive Festival and became hugely successful, especially during the 1950's & The Festival of Britain, the 1960's, 70's and 80's. It grew in entry numbers to become one of the largest in the country. Each of the Sections - Piano, Vocal and Choral, Instrumental, Verse and Drama, Schools' Dance needed a whole week of performance and adjudication sessions, each, using every morning, afternoon and evening. In 2007, entry numbers dropped considerably in the Piano, Instrumental & Vocal section, for a variety of reasons,but we managed to keep going, and now, with the input of a group of young, enthusiastic instrumental teachers, it is gradually returning to its former self.’

'Some of us had been in a Bridlington Choir for nearly three years when, we learnt just after Christmas 2014 that our choir master was to move onto pastures new and that our choir in Bridlington would be closing. You can imagine how shocked we were after being together all this time and making lovely bonds and friendships within the choir. We quietly accepted for a few weeks that was the end of that. Then one cold winter's evening someone had just one simple thought: "Does it have to end?" ...' Alert Website not accessible at Review; cf Facebook Page.

'Recognised as one of the nation's leading amateur symphony orchestras and has been a major feature in the city's cultural landscape for over 130 years. Performing a regular season of three concerts in Hull's magnificent City Hall, we boast a history of renowned conductors, including national figures such as Sir Henry Wood, founder of the Proms ... The story started in June 1881 when a small group of dedicated music lovers gathered at the George Hotel in Hull and proposed the formation of an orchestral music society. With just 27 players, a devoted committee and loyal patrons, the Hull Philharmonic Society was born. Today the orchestra has more than 80 members drawn from local professional and amateur musicians, and enjoys a broad and loyal audience base.'

Junction combines three purposes – the administrative and civic base for Goole Town Council, a community centre and a busy mixed use arts facility, hosting a wide range of live events, cinema and satellite screenings, a workshop programme and activities that reach out into our community ... The programme of events treads a careful path to balance popular appeal with excellent and more challenging work. We are looking to build partnerships, not just attract customers. We firmly believe that we offer significant and sometimes life-changing opportunities ... For a small venue, in a small town, in an often-overlooked corner of East Yorkshire’s flatlands, we punch well above our weight. Junction was instrumental in the establishment of the Small Venues Network and is involved in many regional and national initiatives all with the single purpose of bringing the best possible arts activity to the town and embedding it into the life of the area.‘
