Which is better Stalybridge Labour or Celtic ?- planning our route..... thanks
Do them both they are only about half a mile apart..
Both are good venues and normally have a good crowd listening,,
do you do a street match at both? not sure we'll have time to do both en route to Denton!
As far as I know YES..
If you only want to do one, then do the Labour Club as you can drive past if very busy..
Its a tad more awkward to drive off if you pull into Staly Celtic and there are a load waiting..
I think the march is optional at celtic, Labour can also hide a number of coaches round the back. Last year we asked the man in charge where the coaches turn and he said there were three bands, when we turned in and got boxed up in it there was actually seven
The march at Stalybridge Celtic has been optional the last three years we've been! Think the best option with both is to get your runner to check how many coaches are there as oppose asking the booking in people. Both are a nightmare for your coach to get out of once you have turned in!
March is optional at Celtic, and last time I played at the Labour Club there was no-one waiting so we went straight onto the stand without marching up. If you have to march there it's only about 100 yards in any case. I'd agree that you should get someone to run in and check the parked coaches before you turn into either of them though. Don't ask the organisers as they know you will drive off if they tell you there's a queue of nine bands!
Some good prize money at the Labour Club this year plus the euphonium prize is £100 and is sponsored by Jeff Lewis from Go Go Gaggia.
Sorry the prize is £20 , my error!
