The competition winners were selected from a group of 16 and 17 year olds who had signed up to or expressed an interest in taking part in the National Citizen Service.

Upon arriving in Manchester, the successful few met up with the other winners from across the country and were treated to a few slices of pizza and some complimentary drinks.

Fuelled up and ready to party, the fun began with an energetic set from award winning DJ Goldierocks. Playing a blend of chart music and Ibiza dance tracks, she put the crowd in a great mood and got them ready to have more fun!

Miquita Oliver introduced the first support act, Manchester-based alternative rock band The 1975 who wowed the crowd with their catchy tunes and entertaining lyrics.

Feeling energised and ready to dance, the audience was ready to go wild with instrumental collective Clean Bandit. Comprising of a cello, a violin and laptop, this eclectic band was as fun to watch as they were to listen to.

Finally, it was time to welcome the headliner: drum and bass act Rudimental. The crowd went wild when the group played their two number one singles and were also treated to a couple of new tracks.

Michelle Maora from Sheffield was one of the lucky eight and said “It was amazing and a great experience so I’m really glad I signed up for NCS. Rudimental are great live and I got interviewed by Jim Chapman who asked me how the day was and which act was the best; I said Clean Bandits!”

Feeling tired but cheerful, the crowd was ushered back to the coaches where each person was treated, courtesy of NCS, to a packed lunch and an NCS x Rudimental t-shirt to remember the day by.

Anyone wishing to take part in the NCS summer programme is reminded that places are filling up quickly and people need to register their interest as soon as possible. Find out more about Groundwork's NCS programme here
