Bands take to Roughtown streets for Whit Friday

THERE were not the usual sights and sounds of brass bands marching on Whit Friday this year – so residents in Roughtown set up their own afternoon of entertainment.

Households transformed into musical outfits and, complete with placards, paraded up and down performing their favourite tunes.

Resident Alan Bishop explained: “Residents made their own bands using pots and pans or whatever they could find to play so we could create our own Whit Friday band contest.

“It was nice to see the community come together and celebrate traditions despite lockdown.”
