Welsh Open Brass Band Entertainment Contest Results

The Grand Pavillion in Porth Cawl was the beautiful setting for Filton’s victory in the Welsh Open Brass Band Entertainment Championship. Adjudicators Philip Harper (Music) and Sarah Hayward (Entertainment) deliberated over many fine performances, however it was Filton’s performance under Musical Director Tom Davoren that earned the spoils as they were awarded a three point margin over runners-up City of Cardiff (M1) and 3rdplaced Llwydcoed.
Fourth placed Thundersley also had cause for celebration with their euphonium player, James McCleod scooping up a well deserved soloist prize and the band winning an invitation to compete at the 2019 Spring Festival Senior Trophy.
