I was about to be in a state of shock that a welsh band hadn't won it this year... :wink: well done to Rochdale and Newport. I seem to remember a pretty decent bar at the festival hall (If you had a few quid anyway) so I'm sure it was a good day!

The Greater Gwent Youth won the Triple can anywon beat them! the performance was awsome great buz from playing in that performance. I noticed that most bands had only about 30 players the two gwent bands go on stage with an army of about 70 players :!:
What did others think of the cheography.
 
Greater Gwent youth What can i say :?:

The result says it all,

FANTASTIC PERFORMANCE FOLLOW THAT :grnsm

And just look whats waiting in the wings, 67 tallented youngsters from the Newport Centre Brass Band.

Looking good in wales. :wink: :wink:

Hope your Summer tour to N.Z & OZ goes well.

Hear Alun F. and Andrew Jones are buying the first round :guiness :guiness :guiness
 
Beaumaris Youth were fantastic too by the way!! I really thought they would have got something, they were so together and so smart and professional, I was really impressed!!!

All those who got in the prizes played great... I counted 64 players for newport !!!! I might be a couple of numbers out, but it was funny waiting for them all to sit down! hehe :lol:

Anyway, like I said... there were some excellent performances in that section, all bands should be *really* pleased with themselves... it's the first time Ive sat in and watched every band, and it was well worth it!
