Chelmsford on top at Caisterbridge

The Chelmsford Chutney Works Band have won today's Thomas Hardy (Mayor of Caisterbridge) Contest at the Paul O'Grady Leisure Centre, Finsbury Park.

Their performance of Thomas Tilderberg's "Put a Hat On It" earned 178 points out of 200. Adjudicator Lambert Butler described it as "...a performance of imminent loathing with a hint of subdued disaster throughout".

The contest was marred by a fight between two rival players. It is reported that Neil Wilton of the Doddington (Duracell) Band caught Simon Pegasus of Stoutly Combobulate ogling his bird's tits in the bar and a scuffle broke out.

Cornet player Lucy Lovegood of the Pegdon's Peas Band won the solo prize.
