Tameside Whit Friday Brass Band Committee Update 2023

We are delighted to announce that Tameside will once again be hosting the traditional Whit Friday Brass Band contests at multiple venues across the borough on Friday 2nd June 2023.

Message from the Chair

"I’d like to take this chance to introduce myself, I’m Cat & I was recently voted in as Chair of the Friends of Tameside Whit Friday Brass Band Contest Committee.

On behalf of all our contests, thank you to my predecessor Adam for all of his hard work over the years.


At little about myself, I’ve got lots of fond memories of watching the band contest at a few different locations throughly my childhood. Just before the pandemic I helped out my local contest at Hurst Village before being asked to take it over which I did.


I’m excited for this years contest & looking forward to seeing everyone’s efforts come together on 2nd of June when the fantastic sound of brass will be filling the streets of Tameside & beyond!"

Cat Tomlinson

FOTWFBBC Chair 2023
