Regional Championships

We had a ball at the Regional Championships!  Josh did himself (and Skipton!) proud as the best performers from around Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire came together at Leeds College of Music for a fabulous day of performance.  Where else could you get so much for just £6.00?

No trophy for Josh but an excellent performance nevertheless.

There are several official photos.  Watch this space to find out how to get hold of one.

BIFF Championship

Good luck to Josh!

Good luck to Josh Luxon-Robinson, as he travels to Leeds on Saturday (7th September) to take part in the Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire Regional Championship!

This prestigious contest gathers together the elite performers from all of the Festivals in our Region – which spreads from Huddersfield, right over to the North Sea and from Sheffield, north to Wensleydale.

Josh has been chosen to represent Skipton and will be playing an Edvard Grieg Nocturne (Op 54 No. 4) on the Grand Piano at the Leeds School of Music.

If you have the time, come along to the Leeds College of Music for a feast of the very best of young people’s performances of music, dance and speech.  You’ll be able to say, “I heard them when…” when some of these talented youngsters begin to appear on the national scene.

(“BIFF” is the British and International Federation of Festivals to which the Skipton Festival is affiliated)
