The music service delivers fantastic shows throughout the year and to see our young bands performing with such established and revered bands as the Royal Artillery is a great reward for them.”

The whole night will provide an eclectic mix of young, musical talent as the Rock School, Youth Choir and Dixie Band will all be performing.
