Each year approximately 1000 young musicians are welcomed to the town to participate. Each class is presented with a trophy for the winner, and there are certificates and mark sheets for every performer. Cash prizes of £100 are awarded for the overall winners of the 12 and under, and 15 and under categories and £200 for the overall winner of the 21 and under category.
