About 170th British Open Brass Band Championships

Join 18 of the world’s finest brass bands as they compete to see who will be crowned the 170th British Open Champion – the oldest and most prestigious major contest accolade in the global banding movement.

Each will perform a newly commissioned work by renowned Belgian composer Jan Van Der Roost.

‘The Lost Circle’ is inspired Stonehenge in Wiltshire – the ancient monument whose inner circle is made up of megalithic Bluestones transported over 240 kilometres from West Wales to their final resting place, and which for millennia has evoked questions, guess work, doubt and speculation about its mysterious purpose.
