Tattenhall Music Society celebrates the life of its founder, Ken Griffin, by holding a Biennnial Flute Scholarship for the flautists of the Royal Northern College of Music.

Some past winners are now playing professionally with the leading orchestras of the North West and beyond. The criterion for the competition is simply '...8 minutes of beautiful and contrasting music...' (no pressure!).

There will be something for everyone, of that we are sure.

The semi-finals will be held at the Royal Northern College of Music and the final 8 students will then compete right here in Tattenhall at St Alban's Church TONIGHT, 18 June at 6.30pm.

Tickets will be £8 and under 18's are free.

Laura Jellicoe, Chair of the Society, has assembled a group of adjudicators for the competing flautists but the audience will also have their part to play and will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite flautist too.

Tickets are on sale from Tattenhall Post Office and Tattenhall News or you can simply pay on the door.
