    I've just booked my seat for the finals on Saturday but I'm beginning to think that I didn't pick the best place : in front row of the stalls right round by the left hand side of the stage (as you look at it). I like to be able to see what's happening on stage but didn't want to be opposite 10 cornets. Anyone been before and know the best place to sit? (should've asked before buying my ticket really)

    Can't wait, especially after having listened to 59 bands at Harrogate!

    Will I be able to get a study score on the day?

    Just been speaking to Kirklees and they have confirmed that full size (A4) scores will be available from the programme sellers in the hall itself and in the trade stand hall as well.

    Hope this helps.

    Ok, thanks, just been to the Kirklees website : £10 for the A4 score.

    Let's hope they manage to get some scores over to Regent Hall for the composer's talk on Friday.

    As for seating in the Albert Hall, we tend to go for the front seats in the balcony, with a ledge to rest the scores on. There is also usually a good clear view of the percussion, that suits Jonathan. From your description of your seat, it's more or less directly in front of the boxes 4barsrest had last year. I listened to a couple of bands from there, and you do get a slightly different perspective, particularly with the trombones facing directly towards you.
