Results: 2018 East Coast Championships

The Hunter Regional Band Association held another very successful East Coast Championship and Festival of the Bands. The 11 bands that took park all seemed to enjoy the day and the standard of playing was extremely high. The HRBA would like to thank Catherine Walmsley for being the Adjudicator. It is a very big job and I know that the bands really appreciated her feedback.
