Winter Gardens Eastbourne – February 12th 2013

As part of the Centenary celebrations British and International Federation Festivals were asked to apply to be included in a scheme to award a Trophy and a cheque for £25 for a Junior AESS class that would be included in their syllabus. Ten festivals expressed a wish to be involved and the first to hold the competition was Eastbourne,last Tuesday, where an 11-18 year–old class was won by Chioma Uma.

Her theme was ‘Owls’. In the photograph Graham Trew is presenting the trophy to Chioma Uma, watched by John Crawshaw, the Executive Chairman of the Eastbourne Music and Arts Festival.
