Nacton: Pupils rock out at Battle of the Bands contest
A ROCKING night saw pupils of a Suffolk preparatory school go up against each other with guitars.
The seventh annual Battle of the Bands took place at Orwell Park School at Nacton, near Ipswich, on Friday night.
Young musicians from the school showed their talents, playing rock, pop and reggae numbers with aplomb.
Songs covered included numbers by Bob Dylan, Snow Patrol, Men at Work, Oasis and Take That.
There was also a performance of bagpipes for a more traditional feel.
