Established in 1853, the British Open is we believe the oldest brass band contest in the world.

Karyn and Martin Mortimer further the outstanding legacy of the Open, maintaining the traditions and musical excellence of what we believe to be the oldest musical contest in the world.

The first and foremost contest for British bands, the competition has increasingly attracted enthusiasts from all over the world.

The Open aspires to preserve the established custom of encouraging new compositions to extend and question the boundaries of brass music, and to provide enjoyable challenge to participants, and absorbing entertainment for the audience.
