Battle of the School Bands

Launched in 2016, this annual event is for young people in school years 7-11 in any of our local schools to group together into bands of no more than seven people and practise and perform three contemporary songs. If more than one band exists in each school, heats will take place in December and the winner will be decided by their school. The winners from the heats will then go on to perform at our event in February.

The venue will be Beau Sejour theatre and the bands battle it out in front of 400 people including a panel of four judges.
