The biennial Battle of the Bands competition saw a gathering of rockers and poppers take to the stage in a 6-band showdown for the coveted title of ‘Best Band 2022’. Individual prizes were also on offer for best musician, best singer and best original song.

There was an eclectic mix of genres performed, from punk to classic rock to soul, and even a dash of ska!​ Each band performed an original song and a cover and the standard was superb throughout, making the judging a big challenge. Fortunately, we had an experienced musician in James Humphrys together with his band on the panel, who expertly navigated this task and chose the winners, but not before he performed a few of his recent singles (available on Spotify!).

Huge congratulations to all who performed and a thank you to the Friends for their support in running this event.

The winners were:
Best Singer: Callum (The Provision)
Best Musician: Oscar (The Provision)
Best Original Song: ‘It’s Been Said’ (The Provision)
Runners-up: UFO (Joe, Jess, Maddy)
Best Band: Mainstream (Louis, Mikey, Noah, Karl, Tom)

Ollie is a QEH 'lifer', as he joined QEH Juniors in Year 3, eleven years ago.  It's been great to watch his development through the years, both on and off the pitch.

Ollie signs for the Bears!

Huge congratulations to Mark who has joined the top 2% of the population as a member of Mensa. In typical modest fashion, Mark sat the test on a recent weekend and didn't mention it to any of his teachers!
