Waterbeach Brass

A fun and friendly second section band in Cambridgeshire


Waterbeach Brass Whit Friday 2023





We commenced our 2023 summer engagements by making the journey up to Saddleworth for the annual Whit Friday March Contests on 2nd June (2023 being the band's second appearance).

We had a great time playing ‘I Will Survive’ parading down the village streets before performing ‘Castell Caerfilli’ as our contest quickstep march.

We started our evening playing to a packed audience on the stages in Greenfield and Uppermill in the lovely sunshine. We proceeded through the villages of Diggle, Dobcross and Delph, where it was fantastic to see people singing, dancing along and generally enjoying our performances.

We finished the (now colder!) evening out at Denshaw and Scouthead under the lights, before returning to our accommodation.

We worked hard on the day to get round 7 contests, coming a respectable 45/136 in the area standings with some positive and constructive adjudicator comments. We had a fantastic time and hope to return next year.

Many thanks to our coach driver on the tricky terrain, and the volunteers and organisers of the contests for making us feel very welcome!
