HM Royal Marines Fanfare Team to herald 2021 Champion

The Champion Band of Great Britain is announced during the Results Ceremony of the Championship Section Final, and is signified by a military fanfare. This year, we are delighted to announce that The Bands of HM Royal Marines Fanfare Team will be performing "Royal Flourish" by F. V. Dunn to herald the 2021 Champion.

The fanfare was originally written for traditional ceremonial occasions, and is performed regularly at state events.

The composer is a former Principal Director of Music of the Royal Marines Band Service, famous for composing many marches including “Cockleshell Heroes” and “The Captain General”.

Commenting on their upcoming performance at the Championship Section Final Results Ceremony, a spokesperson for the Royal Marines said: “The Fanfare Team from The Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines Collingwood, are delighted to once again return to the iconic Royal Albert Hall, this time with the honour of announcing the Champion Brass Band of Great Britain 2021".
