The Band is back! The worldfamous Royal Marines School of Music returns for their most sensational
concert of the year, and it’s going to be bigger and better than ever before.

Each year a new generation of musicians and buglers complete their professional training and before beginning their careers in one of the five Royal Marines Bands, the Royal Marines School of Music celebrates with a spectacular afternoon of music and entertainment, culminating with the unforgettable Ceremony of Beating the Retreat.

The Royal Marines School of Music Summer Concert is rich with pageantry and precision. It’s packed with fanfares, marches, choirs and the unbeatable Corps of Drums. It’s a concert that celebrates the pride, the passion and song from some of the finest young military musicians in the country.

In this Jubilee year join us for an afternoon of dazzling performances from The Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines School of Music.
