Whit Friday Marches

What a day!

Members of CBBB joined forces with members from University bands, Staffordshire Band and others to form a scratch band for this year’s Whit Friday contest.

With some singing rehearsals and marching instructions on the coach we were ready to start the day.

Registering at Staleybridge we performed our first rendition of Sweet Caroline and Punchinello to a small crowd. The scratch band then moved on to Heyrod, Mossley, Friezland, Uppermill and Delph to finish. As the evening went on the crowds got bigger and the streets were lined with people singing along!

It was fantastic to be part of this event after Covid halted proceedings over the last couple of years and to see so many bands coming together for such a fun occasion.

Thanks to everyone who joined the scratch band and for making it a day to remember.
