This concert is in aid of the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal and Topic of Cancer,
a charity based in Guildford carrying out research into fighting cancer using the
body’s immune system. This annual proms concert has raised nearly £100,000 over
recent years for the Royal British Legion and other charities.

The 35+ musicians of the Farnborough Concert Band of the Royal British Legion will
be directed by Mark Atkins and will play a lively mix of music but, as always, the
evening concert will finish with the usual patriotic finale including ‘Jerusalem’ and
‘Pomp & Circumstance No. 1’. We are delighted to announce that Helen
Clutterbuck, soprano, will be joining us again this year.

The Farnborough Concert Band of the Royal British Legion was formed in 1987 and
consist of +45 musicians, both ex-military musicians and others, all whom love to
play and perform together. Our members range in age from 18 to 80 and play wind,
brass and percussion instruments.

The Band performs at a wide variety of engagements throughout the year including
traditional bandstands, concerts, charity events, and occasions of remembrance. In
May of this year, the Band had the honour of representing the Royal British Legion at
the daily ceremony of remembrance at the Menin Gate in Ypres, Belgium. Following
the sounding of the ‘Last Post’, the Band laid a wreath and then played for the large
crowds that gathered to remember the fallen of World War 1.
