Grading Tables

The national brass band gradings are determined by each band's results at the regional championships over a three year period. At the end of each year, the bands with the two lowest aggregate scores in each section are promoted and the bands with the two highest aggregate scores are relegated. The winners of the lower section finals also get promoted.

These are our estimates of the grading tables following recent contests, not the official tables! Promotions and relegations won't be official until confirmed by the relevant regional committee.
