THE 46th annual Haydn Wood Musical Festival kicked off yesterday.
And today competitors were gearing up for more classes and the final concert at Linthwaite Methodist Church in Stones Lane.
Prizewinners from yesterday's and today's classes will perform at the closing concert tonight.
Classes being decided today included brass solo, woodwind and the coveted Haydn Wood Trophy for the highest mark for any Colne Valley entrant.
The festival celebrates the life of internationally-acclaimed composer and violinist Haydn Wood.
He was born in Slaithwaite in 1882 and died in 1959 and wrote the poignant First World War song Roses of Picardy.
