Julia Kerby, festival chairman, said: “We can honestly say 2016 has been our biggest and best festival ever!

“All six adjudicators commented on the high standards and complimented us on our organisation and the friendliness of the festival. Plans are already in place for 2017.”

Julia added: “A successful festival relies on goodwill and hard work from so many people and grateful thanks must go to our hard-working committee, our team of volunteers, our adjudicators, all of our advertisers and sponsors, and of course all of our performers and their families.

“We are now looking forward to our 20th anniversary gala concert on Sunday, April 24, 2016, at Walton Girls’ High School, where many of this year’s performers will be appearing again, together with a few from the last 20 years!”
