Two bands competed, a 14 and under band and the full junior town band, and came away with two gold awards, a certificate for the best overall youth band and ensemble and the most promising youth band, along with two trophies.

Sara Llewellyn gave a tremendous performance of Czardas on xylophone.

She was named best under-16 and received the Tim Bourne memorial award trophy.

Dylan Sanders-Swales won the most promising under-12 section.

It was a fantastic day and band leader Bron Parratt thanked all players and supporters for their hard work.
