WHIT FRIDAY BAND CONTEST 2017
Oldham Band (Lees) are celebrating after achieving their best Whit Friday result ever, finishing an impressive 3rd overall. 129 bands took part in this year's Saddleworth contest, and the band saw off some stiff competition, finishing ahead of Black Dyke, Hepworth and Milnrow. The band choose to stick once again with their Whit Friday favourite The Wizard and it did not disappoint. MD John Collins said "Our preparation this year has been perfect and I couldn't have asked for any more from the band on the day. Every member of the band gave 110% and it has shown in our amazing results. We finished in the top five at 6 out of 7 of the contests we took part in, and winning at Uppermill for the first time was the icing on the cake. It was an amazing Whit Friday and I can't wait for next year!".
