Earlier this month, eighteen of the country's finest brass bands gathered at the Royal Albert Hall in LONDON for the grand final of the National Brass Band Championships.

This year Radio 3 commissioned the new work, which all the bands played, from composer Michael Ball.

Petroc Trelawny introduces musical highlights, including the winning performance and soaks up the unique atmosphere of the biggest day of the brass band year.
