The Mayor’s Welcome – Whit Friday

I am delighted to welcome you to Tameside for our annual Whit Friday Brass Band Contest. The event originated over 130 years ago, with the first recorded brass band contests held in 1884.

Now a major highlight of Tameside's event calendar, the contest annually attracts thousands of visitors to the Borough and many visiting bands from across the country and abroad.

All of the contests, which together make up the Tameside competition, are hosted by individual committees of hard working and dedicated volunteers. These tireless people and their kind hospitality, ensure the success and popularity of this event year after year.

Throughout Tameside we are proud to be working within our communities to develop musical and cultural experiences, and I hope that visitors to the contest also make time to extend their experience by visiting one of our other events, details of which can be found on the Tameside Council website www.tameside.gov.uk/culture.

Finally I'd like to take this opportunity to wish each of this year's competing bands the best of luck and hope that we are able to give them a warm Tameside welcome.

 

The Worshipful the Civic Mayor of Tameside Councillor Vincent Ricci
