We can announce that the Band of HM Royal Marines Portsmouth (Royal Band) and Band of HM Royal Marines Collingwood will both be performing at the Deal Memorial Bandstand on Sunday 14 July.
The concert will start at 2:30pm when the Band of HM Royal Marines Portsmouth (Royal Band) will perform an exciting first half to the Walmer Green audience.
After a short interval, the Band of HM Royal Marines Collingwood will be playing a selection of marches, whilst they march from Canada Road towards the Strand where they will continue their musical display, before joining the Band of HM Royal Marines Portsmouth (Royal Band) at the Bandstand on Walmer Green. The concert will continue with the rededication of the bandstand and a rousing and memorable finale.
We expect to welcome a larger than usual audience for this year’s concert and have hired four large LCD TV screens, which will be positioned on Walmer Green. This will give the audience a greater, clearer view of both the concert being performed on the Bandstand and the musicians whilst they march from Canada Road towards Walmer Green during the second half of the concert.
We would like to thank Kent County Council for providing us with a grant to be able to provide these screens. For those wishing to ensure they get the best view on the day we recommend you arrive early. Limited parking for disabled car permits only will be provided south of the Lifeboat Station on the Stand, on a first come first served basis.
Further details on the Royal Marines Concert, including details on further timings for the day and road closures will be provided closer to the date of the concert.
