18 bands will compete for the 2022 British Open Championship title at Symphony Hall on Saturday 10th September.
Supported by Besson, the list of competitors for the 168th event which starts at 10.30am is headed by defending champion Cory.
There are 13 English bands, 3 Welsh and one each from Scotland and France — all of whom will perform Edward Gregson's 'The World Rejoicing — Symphonic Variations on a Lutheran Chorale'.
