** PLEASE NOTE THAT, ON STRICT INSTRUCTIONS FROM GM POLICE, ALL BANDS MUST HAVE FINISHED PLAYING BY  MIDNIGHT. LAST BOOKING-IN HAS THEREFORE BEEN BROUGHT FORWARD TO 10.30 P.M. HOWEVER, WE CANNOT GUARANTEE THAT EVERY BAND BOOKING IN UP TO THAT TIME WILL BE ABLE TO PLAY, AS THE POLICE WILL CLOSE THE CONTEST AT MIDNIGHT. IF IT IS GETTING CLOSE TO 10.30 AND YOU ARE STILL HOPING TO PLAY AT DENSHAW, WE STRONGLY ADVISE YOU TO RING OR TWEET BEFORE YOU ARRIVE TO CHECK THE NUMBER OF BANDS WAITING AND HOPEFULLY AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT**

 

Denshaw is the first Saddleworth venue off the M62, so why not make it your first  

port of call on the circuit? We are located at the junction of the A672, A640 & A6052,

in Denshaw, just 5 minutes from the M62 (junction 21 or 22).

 

If you don’t want to visit us first or last thing on the day, it’s worth knowing that we

traditionally have a quiet spell around 8.00 to 9.30 p.m. and we offer a spot prize of £100

for one lucky band signing in between these times! (NB. Open to all bands, irrespective

of classification, provided that your band has not won another prize at Denshaw).


If you want to check how many bands are waiting before you arrive, please phone

07920 763979 or 07415 383532 or tweet to @Denshawcontest. We have excellent

coach parking facilities and ALWAYS TURN BANDS ROUND QUICKLY. Wherever Denshaw

fits into your route, just give us a call or tweet.  If there is a big queue at another Contest,

you could easily fit us in and then go to take your place in their queue.

 

GETTING HERE AND COACH PARKING

 

If you are travelling West on the M62 please use Junction 22 (not the A640 from

Huddersfield as this road is closed on the night). If you are travelling East you can use

Junction 21 or 22.


Please park your coach on Rochdale Road (not Ripponden Road as this can cause

unnecessary congestion).


You can drop off your runner at the crossroads whilst your coach is parking up.

Please note – your band must all be present when you book in. We cannot accept a

runner who has not travelled with the band.
