    Can any band who is playing in RAH give me an idea of the length of the test piece? I know there are 20 bands in the line up then Dyke are giving a concert before the results but someone in the |RAH booking office has said it is due to end at approx 4.30 - unless it is a very short piece - surely that is way off!. I need to book my return train back up to Yorks and I don't want to miss anything! Thanks

    It's about 13½ minutes. So the contest will probably last between 5 to 5½ hours - depending on the percussion set up time and whether the adjudicators have a break midway through. Finishing at 4.30pm may be pushing it a little though !!!!!

    I've just looked at the Albert Hall website. Currently it states the expected finish time as 5-30pm.
