Battle of the Bands

The inaugural RGS Battle of the Bands Competition which took place last night was a great success. 11 bands took part from Duchess Community High School, Alnwick; Heaton Manor School, Kings Priory School, Longbenton Community College, Newcastle High School for Girls, Ponteland Community High School and the RGS.  The Judges  - Paul Campbell, CEO of Amazing Media, Chris Johns, star of Purely Belter and Byker Grove and professional club singer and Andrew Meadowcroft, Company Director at School of Rock and Pop – deliberated long and hard as the standard was extremely high.  In the end the winner was announced as VOID from The Duchess’s High School, Alnwick and the runner up was KEV from Longbenton Community College.  The winners won trophies, gift vouchers from J.G. Windows and lessons at the School of Pop and Rock.  It was a great night and we are looking forward to next year already!
