FOR the eleventh year Basingstoke Deane Rotary will host the Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines at the Anvil.

The two-hour performance on January 27 will feature toe-tapping, flag-waving and sing-along songs for the whole audience to enjoy.

Last year’s performance featured the Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines Lympstone, directed by Major Ian Davis, who played to a full house with the event raising more than £10,000 for charities supported by the Rotary Club.

This time around the Rotary Club will welcome the renowned Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines Collingwood, under the direction of Captain Tom Crane.

The Rotary Club will also welcome the Royal Corps of Drummers, which will perform a ceremonial beating of the drums as well as having special guests The Chelsea Pensioners in attendance.

The music is mixed with great variety and previously has contained music from the movies, swing band, comedic pieces, popular classical songs often used on TV adverts and good ol’ fashioned patriotic tunes known by all generations.

Once again, this year’s concert will be raising money for various charities which are supported by Basingstoke Deane Rotary.

Tickets range from £24 to £28.
