Occasional wind and rain didn’t stop the show, as twelve bands took to the arena at Himley Hall for the Halesowen Competition, as part of Dudley Borough’s Armed Forces Day event.
In what proved to be tight competition across the classes, Kings Norton YMB were victors in the Contest Class in their first competition in four years. Biggleswade Sea Cadets led the way in the Championship Class, and in the National Class, it couldn’t have been closer between four times league winners Thurmaston Marching Brass and today’s winners Alderley District Scouts.
This also sets up a great contest in just two weeks at Daventry where most of the bands will play again.
