    What better way to recover from the exertions of Whit Friday than with a cold drink, a pub lunch and a brass band, all in the glorious Saddleworth sunshine?

    To celebrate their first appearance at the Whit Friday marches after 114 years of waiting, Fulham Brass Band will be performing a free concert at the Grains Bar Hotel in Oldham, OL1 4SX, from 12-2pm, on Saturday 6th June 2009. Any visitors to the area are invited to come along and listen before the traditional beer walks commence later in the afternoon.

    Coming off the back of a successful contest season, with good results at Leicester, Butlins and the Areas, the band are looking forward to putting on a good show on both the Friday and Saturday. The concert will feature a selection of entertaining music, including old favourites, modern arrangements and some very talented soloists, all under the baton of Musical Director, Simon Jones.

    Great, look forward to seeing you there!

    The latest weather forecasts are predicting good weather for a beer/brew and a few hot dogs so it should be ace.

    Forgive a dumb question from an even dumber yank, but what is this Whit of which you speak?

    Just a final reminder to any bands/players who are staying over at Whit Friday - free concert is 12-2pm at Grains Bar Hotel (see links) just between Delph and Denshaw. Lots of parking, hot and cold food, alcoholic and soft drinks available!!

    Maybe even bring your instrument and have a go!
