This year the winning band will not only receive 2 days of recording time at Cannonball Recordings, free rehearsal time at Eiger Studios, but will also have the opportunity to play on the Pudsey stage at this year’s BBC Children in Need.

After an overwhelming response from young local musicians, the final bands have been selected, and include local Pudsey bands ‘A Mile Down’ and ‘Boxsmash’. Please find attached a full list of the West Yorkshire bands in the final.
