Her Majesty’s Royal Marines

At the Anvil


Royal Marine DrummerBasingstoke Deane Rotary has been privileged in past years to host the Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines at The Anvil playing to very full houses. Covid got in our way but last January we were again able to bring talented musicians to play for us and we will welcome them back in January 2023.

An exciting performance is on offer with some military music but you’ll be entertained by a variety of music genres, swing band, Pop, classical, and comedic pieces. We’ve been delighted by music from the movies, Bond themes and Star Wars and good old-fashioned tunes known and enjoyed by all generations.  The majestic full concert Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines, will include the Corps of Drums.

Everyone’s favourites, our special guests, The Chelsea Pensioners, were at the last minute confined to barracks in 2022, but they should be with us again to make this a very special event.
Tickets on sale from The Anvil Box Office.
