Steeton Male Voice Choir will mark the centenary of the First World War in its performances throughout 2014.

The choir has a long tradition of remembrance for those who fell in the First World War.

It has visited France and Belgium several times to perform concerts near the sites of famous battles.

Tim Bastow, of Ingrow, Keighley, a tenor singer in the choir, said every evening the road into Menin, in Western Belgium, is closed to traffic so that the Last Post can be played.

Mr Bastow said: “This ceremony has taken place every evening since July 2, 1928.

“On three separate occasions Steeton Male Voice Choir has been honoured by being invited to sing under the Menin Arch as part of the ceremony.

“All those who took part have been deeply affected by the occasion.”

The choir will perform on Saturday, April 5, at St Peter’s Church, Shipley. Call (01274) 598221 to book tickets.
