And The Winners Are …

This year’s Eisteddfod was the perfect showcase for Greenfield’s many talented children. After the very popular auditions, the entries were whittled down to the individuals and groups, who made it through to the Eisteddfod itself. We would like to thank our expert judges for giving so generously of their time and providing each performer with individual positive feedback and good advice. Our judges were Claire Estell (Woodwind Specialist from Dudley Performing Arts), Julie Bonar-Philpotts (Vocalist), Ali Pritchard (Dizzee Dance Academy) and Linda Raybould (Dudley’s Primary English Adviser). Our winners in the four categories were:
