The Honeybirds are a 1940s-style close harmony group who delight in playing a range of different events, from weddings and birthday parties to tea dances and festivals.

They pride themselves on their authentic sound and have quite an array of original 1940s outfits, for those 1940s re-enactment event bookings!

Given their success, two more Honeybirds - Molly Marie Walsh and Kate Peters - have been joined Tessa, Jenny and Daisy, meaning even more appearances can be made.

Performing with either backing tracks, pianist, or full live band, The Honeybirds are confident they can provide what you're looking for, and are able to create a bespoke experience, just for you!

Previous performances/clients include: 

Gleneagles Golf Tournament

The English Heritage

Haworth 1940s weekend

Pickering 1940s weekend

BBC Radio Leeds
