Lydgate Band Contest

About The Contest


The Event

We are a community-based organization that host the annual Lydgate Brass Band Contest. We're a part of the Saddleworth Whit Friday celebrations, with brass bands travelling from across the world to perform here in Lydgate.

Thank You

Whether you help through performing in a band, volunteering your time, or turning up on the day, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our event without the help of supporters like you.
