MUSICAL competitors at a "friendly" local festival turned in some outstanding performances, say organisers.

Classes at Wall Music Festival, known as the Friendly Festival, attracted participants from far and wide and included choirs, solo vocalists and performers on woodwind, brass, strings and piano.

Several very high marks were awarded by adjudicator David Bruce-Payne.

Among the top performers were Stithians Ladies Choir (92, 91), David Rashleigh (90), Florence Harrison (90), Jacob Perry (90), Sophie Weeks and Jacob Perry (90), Savannah Hall (90), Hayle String Ensemble (90), the Meagers Ensemble (182), Kerenza Hurr (90), Amanda Lyne (91), Harry Flint (91), Kate Doran (90), Andy Wingham (90), Lucy Wetherill and Martin True (90).

The festival week ended on Saturday evening with a concert by winning performers, at which the special trophies were presented.

Festival chairman Alan Butterfield said: "In everybody's view it was an extremely successful festival. Everything went according to plan.

"The success was due in no small part to our very fine adjudicator, who was not only helpful in all his remarks to competitors, young and old, but was also the most affable of all our adjudicators over the years.

"He really enjoyed himself and said so, and helped all our competitors to enjoy themselves, too."
