Whit Friday 2019

The Richmond Brass Band braved the elements to attend a highlight in any bands calendar – Whit Friday! The event occurs annually and involves marching through a village, then playing a static march for an adjudicator. After that everyone piles into a coach and moves on to the next village to see how many the band can play at over an afternoon and into the evening. Often the weather is challenging but the crowds turn out in-force and everyone has a brilliant time!

This year at Whit Friday the band were very pleased to bag 1st place (4th section) in Denshaw, 2nd place (4th section) in the much coveted Delph contest and 3rd place (still 4th section) at Friezland.

Below is a pictorial overview of how we got on this year!
