There is no list of bands attending on the WBBA website so I wondered which bands were going. I'm told there are 20 in total. I know Michelmersh Silver Band (1st section) and I think Andover Town Band (4th) and Test Valley Brass (3rd) are going. Also what do any of you think of the open style results? For those of you that don't know everyone is given an overall placing between 1 and 20 then prizes are awarded for standings in your section too. It means we could get beaten by a 3rd section band but still win the 1st section prize. I think it makes for a more entertaining day if you are listening because you could hear a champ section band followed by a 4th section band or vice versa. Band's have to play a test piece of an appropriate standard for their section though obviously.
