Ann Lampard continued as adjudicator and gave competitors lots of encouragement and advice on presentation and singing techniques.

The competition took place at the Coronation Hall, Ulverston on Wednesday.

The festival has been running since Sunday and will end with a huge gala evening tomorrow.

Spokeswoman Sue Cain said: “We continued our vocal classes with a full day of singing from all school ages, the day ending with adult choirs.

“From our younger singers up to school Year 6, Ms Lampard selected Varenka Briggs from Kirkby to receive the John F Jennings Young Singers Bursary, and Lucia Harrington from Grange to receive the Julie Wills Vocal Bursary.

“This year in the adult choir classes, K Shoe Male Voice Choir from Kendal received 90 points but were narrowly beaten by Barrow Male Voice Choir who received 91 marks.

“Both gave outstanding performances. In the adult female choir the Ghyll Singers from Ulverston were beaten by only one point by Ottovoce from Milnthorpe.”
