Charity concert from Heroes Band

Tomorrow (Saturday) sees The Heroes Band playing inside the grounds of Herstmonceux Castle on what should be an emotional and uplifting occasion.

The charity concert at 6pm is in support of Help For Heroes.

The Heroes Band is taking a break from its social engagements like Royal Ascot and Wimbledon, and the regular London venues such as the Royal Festival Hall to perform a one off charity concert in this beautiful and historic setting.

The purpose of the Help for Heroes charity is to deliver an enduring national network of support for the UK’s wounded service men and women and their families.

Supporting this charity, The Heroes Band was formed in 2014 and now has over sixty musicians to call upon, including ex-members of such well known military bands as The Royal Marines, The Life Guards, The Blues and Royals, The Grenadier Guards and the Scots, Irish and Welsh Guards.

The band’s Director of Music is David Smart LLCM, an ex-member of the Life Guards Band of the Household Cavalry and their President is Wing Commander Duncan Stubbs, the current Principal Director of Music of the Royal Air Force Music Services.

The Castle grounds are open all day for picnicking, with the concert, that hopefully will be staged open air in the Castle’s Inner Courtyard, but if wet indoors in the magnificent Ballroom, beginning at 6.00pm.

Tickets £17.50 (Seniors & U16 – £15.00) are available on the day itself - for more details of the event or to book call on 01323 834479.
