Whit Friday Marches

On Friday 28th of May a number of the band travelled to Delph to watch the Whit Friday March’s. They were picked up at various points between Kendal and Lancaster and then travelled by coach to the village of Delph one of the many villages that takes part in the Whit Friday marches’ in Saddleworth. They arrived in good time and were able to watch 55 of the 80 bands that were taking part throughout the late afternoon and evening. The weather this year was kind both to those taking part and those supporting and watching this special event and the atmosphere was exceptional. Bands from all over the UK and Europe turn up to play at this event and the standard ranges from Championship section bands to Youth Bands all performing to try to win one of the many prizes on offer at this event.

After a very enjoyable social band event we departed Delph late on Friday evening arriving home in the early hours of Saturday morning.
