Theatre John Ambrose played host to the county's first Battle of the Bands 2014 competition last week as nine bands and acts took to the stage for the chance to win a half day session in a recording studio.
The audience was treated to a mix of performances from solo singers, duets, bands and orchestral groups with all participants ranging from 12 to 18 years of age (school year 7-13) from a number of Denbighshire secondary schools including Dinas Bran, Ysgol Glan Clwyd, Blessed Edward Jones CHS and St Brigid’s.
Pupils from Ysgol Brynhyfryd volunteered to help out for the evening to ensure everything ran smoothly.
The event was organised by Sherrie Paterson, Denbighshire's 14-19 Network Development Officer, with the aim of raising funds for the School Council Forum and charity.
Shannon Robertson from Ysgol Dinas Bran took first place gaining a half day recording session on behalf of TAPE Community Music and Film, Colwyn Bay.
River, a duet from St Brigid’s, took second place and Di-Enw, a band from Ysgol Glan Clwyd was third.
Sherrie said: "The event was really well attended and £386 was raised towards Barnardo's and the School Council Forum, which helps young people make valuable decisions and to share best practice in order to improve their schools for future generations."
