Proceeds to Rotary supported Charities

Royal MarinesBasingstoke Deane Rotary has been privileged for many years to host the Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines at The Anvil playing to very full houses. We will again be able to bring talented musicians to play for us and we will welcome them this time in February 2024.

There is always an exciting performance 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, Star Wars and good old-fashioned tunes known and enjoyed by all ages.
The majestic full concert Band of His Majesty’s Royal Marines, will include the amazing Corps of Drums,
Everyone’s favourites, our special guests, The Chelsea Pensioner should be with us again to make this a very special event.
Tickets on sale from The Anvil Box Office.

Well done to all those who took part. You raised over £60,000 to help the St. Michael’s Hospice continue the wonderful work it does for our community, a fantastic amount. Hopefully you are still glowing with pride at your achievement and will be signing up for next year, or even taking part in the Reindeer Run, see below

Basingstoke Deane Rotary is a group of 35 men & women from a wide variety of backgrounds. All live locally in the borough but some commute to work outside Basingstoke. Most joined Rotary to help others less fortunate, and they find Basingstoke Deane Rotary adds another extremely enjoyable dimension to their lives.
