  Tickets for the vent go on sale this morning at 10.00am

Tickets for the 2018 British Open Championship will go on sale from 10.00am today, Friday 18th May.

The 166th contest will take place on Saturday 8th September at Symphony Hall, Birmingham, where the competing bands will perform Bert Appermont's composition, 'A Brussels Requiem'.

Amended test

Given its world premiere at the 2017 European Championships by Brass Band Oberosterreich, the work has recently been used in both France and Australia.

In agreement with the composer it will be performed in a slightly amended version for the contest.

The competition will see reigning champion Valaisia defend the title against a line-up of world class bands, including 2017 European Champion, Eikanger Bjorsvik Musiklag from Norway.

With the event completely sold out for the past four years, demand for tickets is expected to be very high. Those wishing to attend are advised to book their seats as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

The contest, which once again is sponsored by Besson, will commence at 10.00am.
