2020 North Wales BBA Solo & Ensemble

Commenting on the event NWBBA Chair, Aled Williams stated, "To start the contest with over 30 players under the age of 12 is fantastic and bodes well for banding in north Wales." It proved to be an expecially successful day for the Gwilliam family from Beaumaris who competed as a family quartet, in addition to 3rd prize for both girls, Catrin and Elin in their respective sections, a 1st prize for Elin and duet partner Glwys in the U14s and a win for Dad Bari Gwilliam in the Open Slow Melody contest.
