Sea cadets get to final of nationwide music contest.

NORTH East sea cadets have won a place at a national competition.

Hebburn & Sunderland Sea Cadets Marching Band will represent the northern area at the national band competition and will perform against nine other bands at the Tower of London on Saturday, August 22.

An expected 25,000 visitors will hear 10 Sea Cadet marching bands perform on the Tower of London Moat.

Around 150 Sea Cadets, aged between 12 and 18, have competed at a local level in 400 towns across the UK to make it to the nationals.

Band master Davy Hanson said: "We are thrilled that we have won a place at the Sea Cadet National Band Competition.

"This is the icing on the cake as we have had a brilliant year. The unit band has just come back from Belfast in Northern Ireland, where they played for thousands of people visiting the Tall Ships Parade and Mayor of South Tyneside's parade."

The Sea Cadets charity offers young people between 10 and 18 an environment where they can find confidence and inspiration through nautical adventure as well as land-based activities.
