Defending 2015 champions Besses o’ th’ Barn Band, under the baton of guest conductor Mareika Gray, delighted judges and a packed audience in the Holmfirth Picturedrome on Saturday 19 November 2016 with its playing, choice of music, and its all-round entertainment value. Besses took second prize in the latest round of a Yorkshire entertainment contest, Brass Factor, where the results are decided by audience voting rather than the panel of judges.
