    Stan Lippeatt came up with exactly the same results as I did. 3 good programmes performed well. Wasn't overly impressed with NCT's Cops and Robbers interpretation but Mr. Lippeatt seemed to like it, so who am i to commen?t!!
    Highlights of the evening were NCT's Amazonia (I think Windows of the World is a great piece anyway, but it was well executed), Stannington's Strike Up The Band and Ridding's Checkmate.

    Great evening's entertainment, well done all!!
