Rockquest final on next month

21:59, Jun 23 2014

The Smokefreerockquest Marlborough regional final will go ahead in Blenheim, after concerns the event would be cancelled due to low entries.

Event producer Dan Kendrick said the committee had decided to "just make a go of it".

Seven bands had entered, and organisers were anticipating two more would also sign up.

The competition is held nationwide and is open to school students under the age of 19.

Marlborough Boys' College and Queen Charlotte College both entered in 2014, with Queen Charlotte College entering four bands and two solo artists.

The regional final is taking place on July 4 in Blenheim.
