Young musicians from around the county have been competing in a contest in Kettering this week.

About 1,000 performers will have taken part in the 103rd annual Kettering Eisteddfod by the end of the week.

Ruth Groome, the festival’s child protection officer, said: “We always hope a lot of people will enter and we’ve had a good response this year. The eisteddfod is very good for encouraging local talent of all ages.

“Performing in front of people is also good for building character and confidence.”

The festival has 219 classes to choose from, divided into instrumental, vocal and speech and drama classes.
