Friary boost ahead of Albert Hall appearance

The Senior Trophy champion adds yet more silverware to their CV ahead of Arthurian battle.

Friary Guildford
 

National finalists Friary Guildford enjoyed a timely boost of confidence before they make their second successive Albert Hall appearance next weekend, with victory at the recent scaba Autumn contest at Crawley.

Arthur run out

As reported on 4BR, the band opted to give ‘The Legend of King Arthur’ an early run out and came away with victory.

They also beat rivals and London & Southern Counties Area champion Wantage A into second place, in what turned out to be a musical ‘sword in the stone’ battle, after they also chose to play Peter Meechan’s work.

We are working hard over to bring us to peak performance in time for our Albert Hall appearanceContest Secretary, Alex Stevens

Peak

Contest Secretary, Alex Stevens told B4R: "We are working hard over to bring us to peak performance in time for our Albert Hall appearance.

However, we were delighted with the result which gives us a good measure of confidence that we’re on the right track."
