Date: 02 February 2014
Venue: Larruperz Centre, Grammar School Close, Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire, HR9 7QD
Adjudicator: Ian Porthouse
Compere: Nigel Morgan
Yet again another good day of music at the Larapurz Centre, Ross on Wye.
Ian Porthouse adjudicating said he thoroughly enjoyed listening, and was particularly impressed with the high energy given out by the youth and training bands. He also remarked following Section A (registered bands), that a band should be "exciting" and not "excited" - a great tip for more control overall.
The committee wish to thank all the bands for turning up, and hope to see everyone at the Annual GBBA Contest 30th November 14.
