In Pictures: Fiddle Race and Guitar Race 2023

By Newark College

The Fiddle Race and Guitar Race 2023 saw teams battle it out to complete their instrument within a tight deadline.

The theme for 2023 Fiddle Race was ‘FARANDOLE OF VIOLAS’. Four teams of students had just three days to create their Viola and ensure it hit the brief.

The Guitar Race consisted of two teams who had five days to produce a playable guitar in the style of Martin 00 model.

On Friday 12th December, a prize giving ceremony celebrated all the students' hard work and crowned the winning teams. See the image gallery below to see the students' creations!
