Congratulations to Rochdale who i'm told were fantastic! Did anyone here go to watch the contest?

I love the action research contest, it's a great opportunity for young bands to play in a great venue and it's always really well organised. It stuns me how high the standard of these youth bands is!!

Long may it continue! :D
