Under the leadership of musical director, Jayne Brownlie, the youngsters produced a wonderful programme of music, playing Pierre Ghint’s Swingin’ With The Mountain King then a brass compilation from the musical Grease.

At the nail-biting award ceremony, Coalburn Bronze Band was one of three to be awarded a Gold Certificate, swiftly followed by the announcement that Coalburn were champions.
