The event is a tribute to the "Hospital Sunday" fund-raising events that took place at the Scarr Bandstand during the first half of the 20th century. Brass Bands marched to the Scarr, where several thousand people gathered to hear the music, listen to speeches and a church service, and donate funds for local hospitals and good causes. "Hospital Sunday" fund-raisers stopped once the NHS began.
