Yeovil Entertainment Contest
Well, Woodfalls got the top position this year, with Sherborne coming in at 9th place, with 186 points. This was a great result for the band and all were happy at the end of the day!
We had a great day out and had the chance to listen to some superb performances by top bands. And, if anything learned a little more about the competition that we face for next year’s contest! There were some truly spectacular performances – including our own band, who started the contest off to fantastic start with a “shiver down the spine” rendition of God Save the Queen.

My personal favourite band being Tongwynlais band, under the superb baton of musical director Philip Harper! What a wonderfully inspiring conductor he is!
Anyway – a great day was had by all, and what a cracking experience for the band.
We look forward now to practicing like crazy for the upcoming Regional Area championships in Torquay in March. Another road trip here we come!
