Join the Grand Fancy Dress Parade

hgfest2017_music

Come and join this year’s parade at 12:30 pm on the field

Please note: This year the parade will be inside the field, as red tape and safety issues have driven us from the roads. The Oldham Pipe Band will lead the children’s parade around the field at 12.30pm. Anyone can join the parade, whether in fancy dress or not, just follow the band and enjoy!
