30+ of the best British Style Brass Bands will completed Saturday, March 11 for the NABBA Championship in the Overall Championship Section, First Section, Second Section, Third Section, Youth Section, and Youth Open Section.

For the first time this year the contest was streamed on a "Pay Per View" basis. Personally I was too ill to attend, but the Pay Per View was a great second option.

Here are the 1st and 2nd Place Results for each division as they were announced on Saturday night:
