Tameside Whit Friday Brass Band Committee Update 2024

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 24th May 2024.

Message from the Chair

"I’d like to take this chance to introduce myself, I’m Cat & I was voted in as Chair of the Friends of Tameside Whit Friday Brass Band Contest Committee. back in 2023


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


I’m excited for this years contest & looking forward to seeing everyone’s efforts come together on 24th May when the fantastic sound of brass will be filling the streets of Tameside & beyond!"

Cat Tomlinson

FOTWFBBC Chair 2024

Please Note: Due to ongoing works at the ground Stalybridge Celtic FC, Stalybridge will not be hosting band contests in 2024, they are really looking forward to getting back in the mix in 2025 and beyond.
