There were two categories in the competition - Instrumentalists and Vocalists. The standard and quality of all the entrants was superb and the three Adjudicators were suitably impressed. However only one person from each category goes forward to the  National Final but congratulations to all entrants.

The judges for the day had a difficult job in determining the winners and they commented on the very high standards from all the entrants. However after much deliberation the winners and runners up were:

Instrumentalists

1st place       Ellis Thomas sponsored by the RC of Colwyn Bay.

Runner up    Nicholas Rushworth sponsored by the RC of Tottington &                        Bury West. 

Vocalists       

1st Place      Angelina Dorlin-Barlow sponored by the RC of Southport.

Runner up   Saffron Doherty sponsored by the RC of Tottington & Bury                       West.

Both Ellis and Angelina  will now move forward to represent our Region in the National Finals being held on Saturday 19th May in Edinburgh.

Finally  a word of congratulations to the RC of Tottington & Bury West who sponsored  the runners up in both categoties.  Well done.
