BGS Battle of the Bands

Last night’s Battle of the Bands featured the cream of BGS’s rock and pop bands. After an opening number from the BGS staff band, complete with a new recruit on guitar – BGS Headmaster, Mr Barot – the competition began.

The audience was treated to brilliant performances from every act, with pupils from Year 7 through to Upper Sixth taking to the stage. Congratulations to the winners and well done to everyone who took part – you gave our judges, former BGS student Hannah Khan and pop session vocalist Ruth Royall, a really tricky task.

Best Junior Band: Frostbyte – Edward, Adi and Bert (Year 7)
Best Senior Band: Now There Are Three – Marcus, Jamie and Ellie (Upper Sixth)
Best Instrumentalist: Jackson, drums (Year 10)
Best Vocalist: Joint winners – Marcus (Upper Sixth), Tash (Upper Sixth) and Katy (Year 10)

A huge thank you also to everyone who came along to support the event – thanks to sales of tickets and refreshments, the event raised more than ever before for charity (this year's event was in aid of Surfers Against Sewage).
