    I don't have found any information as well. At the Homepage of the Royal Albert Hall I only have see, that you can book a gala concert beginning 7.45 pm. No further information. Does anyone know more?

    All I have found out is that you have to pay separately -- it is not included in the ticket for the championships during the day.
    Does anyone know if, during the championships, people wander around much? It's a long time to sit rigidly in your seat.

    You can move in and out between bands (often to see trad stands or pop in at the Queens), but usually at the Albert Hall you have to stay pretty close to your assigned seat.

    Except that last year Mnozil Brass only had a short spell while the results were being sorted out. Dyke are also due to include elements from their recent celebratory concert, and we'll certainly be booking our seats asap ;)
