The festival was a great success for the band which was awarded Gold and Most Entertaining Programme. It was a fantastic day with great music and the other six bands provided strong competition for us. Adjudicator Andrew Stopps awarded four Gold Awards and three Silver which indicates the quality of playing from all groups involved. Congratulation to the band and the other participating groups!
