JUDGES and audiences were enthralled by an eight-day music festival that came to an end last week.

The choir section of the 104th Taunton Festival of the Arts was held at Queen's College Hall last Thursday.

It followed two weeks of keen competition from young people from across the area, with various sections held at Queen's, Taunton School and Temple Methodist Church.

The festival resumes with the drama entries at Temple Methodist Church from Monday to Friday, March 5 to 9, with the dance festival at Queen's from Wednesday to Saturday, May 30 to June 2, followed by a gala performance the next day.
