The Co-operative Funeralcare Band, from Glasgow, took home the top prize of the challenge trophy.

Depute council leader Cathy Muldoon, who presented the prizes, said: “The festival saw some excellent performances from some of the top brass bands in the country, which made the judges’ job of picking winners very difficult.”
