Premier Win for Roche at Exmouth Entertainment Contest

Published in Contest on 2013-09-08 by Empty Chairs

More news from Exmouth Entertainment Contest

The 14th Exmouth Brass Band Festival, promoted by the South West Brass Band Association, was held on Saturday 7th September at the Exmouth Pavilion, with a capacity audience enjoying a feast of music presented by 10 bands from Cornwall, Devon and Somerset. Adjudicating the Entertainment Contest, Paul Norley congratulated all the bands and their musical directors for the high standard of playing, together with well thought out programmes of music, presentation and deportment.

Unfortunately the summer weather did not continue until the day of the Festival. Three bands managed to present their fringe Concerts in the Pavilion Gardens before the rains came and play had to be abandoned at one o’clock, though in a short break in the clouds, the Tiverton Town Band managed part of their programme before the rain settled in once again. Overall, the exemplary high quality of playing, deportment, presentation and friendly bonding of the bands with their public is a credit to the brass band movement.

The awards were presented by Bruce Taylor, Taylors Business Development & Marketing.
