Said Director of the ‘National’, Philip Morris: “As always, we have been careful to appoint a breadth of experience to the Finals’ adjudication ‘boxes’ again this year.” He added: “Stephen Cobb’s wide expertise of brass bands, along with directing them as Director of Music and Creative Arts for The Salvation Army UK and Bandmaster for The Salvation Army’s flagship International Staff Band, will add weight to the wide and deep expertise of both Robert Childs and Rob Wiffin at the Championship Section Final.

“Tickets for the Royal Albert Hall Final are now on sale from the venue’s box office and arrangements about purchasing tickets for the Cheltenham Finals will be announced in due course.”

The Finals for sections 1 – 4 take place at The Centaur, Cheltenham Racecourse, on 18 – 19 September and the Championship Section Final at the Royal Albert Hall, London, on 2 October.
