Two super heavyweight brass bands go head to head, side by side on the same stage to decide whether it’s Mexico or the Balkans that can blow the hardest.

Whilst in the East father and son Boban and Marko Markovic  have become the gypsy brass kings of the Balkans; in the West, Germán, leader of the Lizárraga dynasty of Banda musicians from Northern Mexico, has blown his way to ascendancy with the Estrellas de Sinaloa. London, as ever, is the place where these things are laid to rest. A world premiere title decider,  white-hot-brass-knuckle ride not to be missed with the audience the only guaranteed winner.

This concert will start at 8pm and there will not be an interval
