    Does anybody know an estimated duration of the event?

    I was thinking of travelling and pre booking train tickets and just wondered if anyone could help.

    Cheers Guys

    I think you'll be hard pressed to get a good answer since it is a new piece this year and a 2.5 minute difference in piece length can mean an hour difference in ending time. Usually there is a good hour to grab tea before the gala concert though.

    Normally reasonably safe to work on just over twenty minutes per band, plus a 20 minute comfort break for the judges.

    On the official notification from Kapitol, the Contest is starting at 10.00 and finishing at approx 4.45. If possible, there will be a break for the adjudicators after band 10 if at all possible.
