|The 14th West Kent are celebrating! One of their senior band members, Steven Dawson aged 15, won the Drum Major Cup at the recent National Showcase Marching Band Championships, held at Stoke on Trent, beating 17 others from all over the country to take the title. This was quite an achievement as this was his first time competing at such a big event.
Some other 14th band members joined with another company from Malvern, Worcestershire, to make history by competing as a massed band even though they live 150 miles apart. They keep in regular contact throughout the year and after just two practices, they gave a great performance and were thrilled that their Drum Major lifted the National Trophy.
