The big prize on offer was a day in a professional recording studio for the winning band, which went to Havoc – four teenagers from Enfield Grammar School.

Runners up Chemicalia were made up of Brookmans Park’s Chancellor’s, Hertford’s Richard Hale and Ware’s St Edmunds Schools and had been together for just six weeks. Red Light, from Mount Grace, came third.

The Potters Bar band said that performing in the competition had inspired them to work harder to get even better as a band. A sentiment shared by all the youngsters who took part.
