Every year, we try to bring you something new, something fresh and something greater to wow you! And this year, we are over the moon to be able to have the HMS Heron Royal Navy Volunteer Band take part in Buckham Fair 2017 to add some extra flair and grandeur to the day.
Here’s more about the band (Taken from their website)
“Our band is a friendly, enthusiastic and progressive wind ensemble which performs as a concert band and marching band. Its members are drawn from serving and ex-serving members of the Armed Forces and civilians from the unit and local area.
The repertoire is common to most concert bands and includes popular classics, overtures, film music, selections from West End shows, military marches and contemporary works. It is constantly refreshed with new and challenging pieces.
The band meets on Monday and Thursday evenings from 7.30pm to 9.30pm at RNAS Yeovilton, near Ilchester. It prides itself in participating in a wide variety of engagements not only to support the establishment and the local area but also around the UK and abroad.
Although a busy and hard-working band, time is always found to socialise together in addition to music-making.
The band has a full-time Bandmaster from the Royal Marines Band Service and its current incumbent, Band Sergeant Tom Griffin, has been with us since September 2016. Click the link on the left to find out more about our Bandmaster.”
