    Where abouts in Hebden Bridge does the March and Hymn Tune Contest take place?

    What time does it start on the Sunday?
  3. They perform the contest march and hymn tune in the main sq, start off marching up from the Ladbrokes car park and past the pack horse bridge up to the sq. I'm sorry but I don't know the start time, its a great day out with pubs, chip shops and cafe's surrounding the event which are open. Probably the best location for a march contest!
