LOCAL bands have been practicing hard and are making final preparations for an annual contest aimed at spotting the top talent across parts of the Yorkshire Dales.

At least seven groups from across the Hambleton district will enter the fight to take top slot in the 'Battle of the Bands' contest at the Hambleton Forum in Northallerton next Friday (September 22).
