The November update of the Band Supplies — 4barsrest.com World Rankings sees Cory band posting the highest total since the rankings began in 2001, following yet another outstanding success at the Royal Albert Hall.
Cory is already certain to finish top of the rankings at the end of 2016, a remarkable ten years on top of the world. Its current lead also means that it is fairly likely that it will remain in the same position 12 months later!

Bolsover Festival of Brass — won by Yorkshire Imperial Urquhart Travel;
Welsh League Fishguard Contest — won by Tongwynlais Temperance;
