Whit Friday 2017 Results: Tameside Contests

East of the M60’s classified check on Tameside’s Whit Friday Brass Band Contests

Fodens Band at The Albion Hotel, Dukinfield
Runaway Winners of the Tameside Open Championship: Foden’s Band at The Albion Hotel, Dukinfield.

Foden’s landslide continues

In the last two days, there was two things we learned about. Firstly, Theresa May didn’t get the landslide victory she thought she would have got, thanks to a strong showing by Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour party. Secondly, the only landslide victory, recorded on our shores, belonged to Foden’s Band. In Tameside, they won nine out of twelve Whit Friday Brass Band Contests.

At Stalybridge Labour Club, they finished second to Wingates Band; at Bower Fold, they didn’t feature in the top three. Elland Silver Band came out on top at the Hurst Cross contest.

In the Tameside Open Championship, Foden’s were top dog, taking £2,500 back to Elworth, and cash prizes from the contest venues. Ashton-under-Lyne came second pocketing a £1,000 in the Open, with Rothwell Temperance Band taking away £750 from the borough-wide competition.

The best local bands in the borough-wide championship are Mossley (£750), Stalybridge Old Band (£600), and St. John’s Mossley (£400). Tameside’s highest ranking youth bands are Mossley Hollins School (£200) and Hattersley Brass (£100).

It was a good Whit Friday for Mossley’s brass bands: all three of the town’s brass bands came away with a clutch of prizes between them. Mossley Band picked up the Best Local prizes at Broadoak and Dukinfield (Tame Valley), plus a number of First Section prizes. These were picked up at Droylsden and Denton. They were runners-up to Ashton-under-Lyne band – who were the first band on at the first ever contest at the Albion Hotel, Dukinfield.

Mossley Hollins Band dominated the youth section prizes winning at all Tameside venues they competed in, apart from Denton Cricket Club. Hattersley Brass took the top Youth prize there.

The Results:

Following the retirement of The Broadoak Hotel’s landlord, the Broadoak contest has moved to Ashton-under-Lyne Rugby Union Football Club. This year, another Robbies house played host to The Greatest Free Show on Earth – and a completely new venue at that. The Albion Hotel, Dukinfield did well with 36 bands on its Whit Friday contesting début. A figure which turned out to be above average for this year’s Tameside contests.

Weather was sunny with some cloudy intervals with the rain threatening to appear. Thankfully it held off during the contests, which couldn’t have been said for the weather at 11am (heavy rain for about 20 minutes).
