Almost 1,000 people took part in a major music and spoken word festival in Truro.

The 104th Cornwall Music Festival attracted participants from schools and singing groups across the county.

Hundreds of people involved in the festival packed Truro Methodist Church on SaturdayMar15 night for a gala concert.

Carolyn Buley - general secretary of Cornwall Music Festival, said: “Each year the standard of performance at this festival is high and this year did not disappoint the committee, the adjudicators or the audiences for the various sessions.”

During the interval on Saturday Jane Fletcher, festival chairman, presented a host of special awards and thanked all of the sponsors, music teachers, accompanists, schools and more than 90 volunteers who enable the event to run smoothly.
