Foden's Band has announced that they will perform a National Championship 'Preview' concert on the night before their contest appearance at the Royal Albert Hall in October.

It will include a performance of the set-work 'Heroes' under the baton of Russell Gray, as well as an introduction and analysis of the work by the composer Bruce Broughton.

He added: "We are especially delighted to be able to welcome Bruce Broughton to the event to introduce the work and give the audience a unique insight into the story behind it."
