Beverley Kelly, from NFOM, said: “We had entries in 90 classes and 372 different individuals entered in singing, choirs, piano, speech and drama.

“There was one mark of 95 and two others of 90, all of which indicated outstanding performances. There were also 49 performances which gained marks of 87-89 which indicated performances of distinction.”
