    I live in Northern Ireland and want to come over to England to see the Whit Friday contests. I see towns like Delph, Diggle, Dobcross mentioned. Where's the best place to go? Are there any accommodation websites?

    Hi Merv. Ever thought about taking part....? Plenty of bands usually looking for players in the leadup

    If you want to spend a day listening, depends on what youre looking for really. Delph has probably the best atmosphere, but gets a bit rowdy towards the end. Dobcross is perhaps a bit quieter but still a great location. Diggle seems to be a lat night stop for many bands.....

    Wherever you pick, remember that its difficult to get between contests once things get started. Your only real bet if you want to change venues is to either walk or cadge a lift on a band bus....
