“Its great that so many Haverhill based bands are entering the competition this year. The Town Council is keen to promote live music at the Arts Centre and this competition is an ideal way for that to happen and for local groups to showcase their talent.
The first prize is the chance to make a CD in a recording studio, plus a gig at the Arts Centre.
