With concerns of the impact of the Coronavirus organisers of the traditional Whit Friday Brass Band Contest have confirmed this years event will not be taklng place. The competition has been a popular event each year with band performances across Tameside including Stalybridge Celtic, Stalybridge Labour Club, Ashton Rugby Club and Denton Cricket Club.
On behalf of the Saddleworth Area Contests, Chairman Bob Rogers said ” Following much soul searching and debate between the 11 Saddleworth and Oldham Whit Friday Contests, we have reluctantly decided that we must follow Government guidelines, and guidance from Brass Bands England, and not hold the contest in 2020.
We know that this is one of the highlights of the calendar not only for local people, but also for Brass Bands nationally and internationally. We look forward to running a fantastic event on 28th May, 2021, and hope that everyone keeps safe throughout these unprecedented times.”
