Whit Friday

OK...here's the scenario...approx 100 brass bands tearing around beautifully scenic villages in Lancashire and causing absolute mayhem...

Each band performs a march then their set piece in front of an adjudicator trapped in a nearby shed/caravan etc...we arrive on our coach, send someone off to race to the organiser with the score and then we're off...! The band then disembarks from the coach and marches down to where they have to play their set piece, playing as they go...

Yes, it's the Whit Friday marches again...it's the one time when you can hear top bands such as Brighouse and Rastrick, Black Dyke, Grimethorpe, Fodens etc competing against little bands like ours...

It's absolutely amazing fun, although it gets a bit manic at times!

Re: Whit Friday

Just a reminder for anyone in the area tomorrow...it's going to be a simply fabulous afternoon/evening!

If any of you have seen the wonderful film "Brassed Off" with the late Pete Postlethwaite, this is your chance to be there and be part of it.
