Holme Valley Brass Band Contest
The Pennine Hills around Holmfirth have a reputation for being the home of many artistic endeavors. The creators of the best-known seaside postcards – Bamforth – started their business in these hills, Roy Castle, OBE, the dancer, singer, comedian, actor, television presenter and musician hailed from these parts and the world’s longest-running TV comedy show “The Last of the Summer Wine” was filmed here.
For those wishing to relax on a Sunday and listen to some very fine live music, entry to the Contest on is £5 with an opportunity to buy raffle tickets for prizes to be drawn on the day. Refreshments, including tea, coffee, cakes and sandwiches, will be served upstairs in the Lesser Hall, most of the day. For those wanting a stronger brew, The Post Card Inn, opposite, who sponsor the Contest programme – thank you – can provide, accompanied by a tasty menu.
