Apologies if there is already a thread on this. I searched, but nothing jumped out at me. I've been to the Whit Friday marches as a spectator for the last few years visiting Delph, Uppermill and Greenfield so far. Each has its merits and downsides. My perception so far... Delph Pros - good accoustics down a built-up street and in the contest area. Enough refreshment caterers (but not a huge choice). Lots of bands including the 'big boys'. Cons - limited viewing space for the contest area Uppermill Pros - plenty of space to view the march and contest area, lots of refreshment choice, usually lots of bands including the 'big boys' Cons - attracts unsocial behaviour (not particularly family friendly if you have young children) Greenfield Pros - good accoustics on the march, plenty of spectator space at the contest area, enough refreshment caterers (but not a huge choice), family friendly Cons - uphill march arguably doesn't give you the bands' best performance. I'd like to try a different venue this year and I'm interested in people's suggestions. My main requirements are: - a family friendly place where it's easy to find space to place a camping chair for both the march and contest plenty of bands including the 'big boys' Any thoughts / suggestions?
