Anvil Bronze Medal

1988 Convention, Harrogate

In 1988, Anvil Chorus achieved the bronze medal and were awarded the Wearside Trophy for third placed chorus at this convention (our highest placing so far)

On the third row, number 5 is Louis Radford according to Rick Scott. Simon Hilton and Peter Hughes also think his name is Louis. However, Dale Kynaston insists that it is Mark Lloyd as he was Dale’s best man and claims he should know!
