YOUNG musicians descended on the Colne Valley to take part in a regional festival.
The regional Music For Youth festival was held on Saturday and Sunday at Colne Valley High School in Linthwaite.
More than 1,200 young singers, instrumentalists and dancers, aged five to 21, came to the school - travelling from Huddersfield, Halifax, High Peak, Glossop and Manchester.
The performers took part in 39 groups.
Two of the groups were brass ensembles from Colne Valley High School - Colne Valley Alloys and Colne Valley Brassicas.
There were also 11 groups from Kirklees Music School - two guitar groups, a percussion ensemble, three string orchestras, three wind bands, a big band and a brass band.
The music school's Shelley Music Centre entered two wind bands and a big band.
Its Huddersfield Music Centre concert band also took part.
The school's Holme Valley Music Centre entered two string groups and a guitar group.
Cleckheaton Festival Junior Band also entered, along with jazz group High Fidelity and ensemble High Flyers - both from Honley High School.
Meltham CE Primary School entered its infant string group, while Moorlands Primary School at Outlane put forward its school band.
Other notable performers included the Sellers International Youth Band.
The festival was one of 60 Music For Youth regional events being held across the UK between now and April 5.
When the last chord is struck on that date, 42,000 young musicians will have performed in the world's largest youth music festival.
Music For Youth will soon be choosing 300 groups from different regions to perform at the National Festival of Music For Youth in Birmingham in July.
Thirty of these groups will be chosen at the national event to play three special prom concerts at the Royal Albert Hall in London on November 13, 14 and 15.
The festivals are all held with help from the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music and charity Youth Music.
