by Angela Robbins, Oct 2016

In recent years this event was organised by Ashton U Lyne Rotary. For many years we sponsored a barrel and helped to raise money for numerous good causes.

This year Tameside Rotary, of which I am a member, took over the running of the event. We had massive help from the previous organisers, many of whom are now members of Tameside Rotary.

This year was different, for as well as Well Polished AUL being a sponsor, I was also involved as an organiser. I was appointed the entertainment Director and in this role I was lucky to be able book some great acts. The acts included:

  • Eric Barrow, international crooner.
  • Pattison Fogg, a well renowned local band.
  • Phoenix Brass Hoppers, brass ensemble performing in the style of an Oompah Band.
  • State of Flux, a very talented band of young musicians.
  • Standing in for Joe, taking us back to classic punk.
  • Inside Job, a lively four piece fronted by Stuart Harrison-Heffer.
