You can settle back in a comfy sofa and kick off a full weekend of competitive action tonight as the Kapitol Cory Online Brass Band Championships reaches its climax.

You can set your iplayer to record the international rugby and F1 racing and instead enjoy the fantastic performances in the Youth, Third and Championship Sections — with the results being announced on Sunday evening.

And as the leaderboard (above) shows, there is still plenty to play for to find out which 'region' of the banding globe can boast the best bands with the Rest of the World currently out in front from Yorkshire with Europe in third!
