The Forth Bridges Accordion Band swept the boards when it won all three major awards at the Family Arts Council Festival.

It won the best family venue, best family event and best family welcome awards.

During the Family Arts Festival the band had an open evening inviting families along to their band practice.

Many members of the community attended with some people even joining the group.

Members of the public were also able to see the band participate in a typical night at band practice.

The evening finished with the public getting a chance to try to play a musical instrument and hearing the band perform.

Members of the public then had to go online and vote for their favourite group. There were 5000 across the UK to select from.

Band members are pictured at the awards ceremony in London with one of their three awards.
