Whit Friday in Delph
Whit Friday in Delph
King Street in the village of Delph is closed during the annual Whit Friday Brass Band Contest.
From the earliest recorded contest in 1884, the event has grown in popularity. This year well over a hundred brass bands participated in some twenty different contests at venues scattered around the moorland villages and towns on the western edge of the Pennines.
It is possible to look in at several contests during the evening but with over 100 bus-loads of bandsmen about and with many of the local roads closed to traffic plus the inevitable parking problems, it pays not to be over-ambitious.
