National Mining Museum Youth Band ContestWednesday 4 July 2018
“Here are the happy young bands who took part in the inaugural “National Mining Museum Youth Brass Band contest” on Saturday 30th June. The 4 youth bands who entered were: Loanhead Brass Roots, Newtongrange Youth Initiative, Whitburn Development Band and Bathgate Youth Band. The judges had the difficult task of finding a winner and with a polished performance and a well thought out programme the band who found favour with the adjudicating team were the youngsters from Loanhead Brass Roots.
Victoria Robb the Education Manager for the National Mining Museum, and organiser, was delighted with the whole event and hopes to make this an annual event.
