In Concert With The Central Band Of The Royal Air Force And Uppingham School
On Saturday 18 October the Central Band of the Royal Air Force will perform a special concert at the Uppingham School Memorial Hall to mark the centenary of the outbreak of World War One. Proceeds will be donated to the 2014 Poppy Appeal and also to the Royal Air Force Music Charitable Trust.
Air Vice-Marshal Nigel Sudborough, President of the Oakham Branch of the Royal British Legion, said ‘It will be a great privilege for us to welcome The RAF Central Band to Rutland for the first time. We all look forward very much to hearing some of its outstanding music, which will also include some performances by the very talented musicians of Uppingham School’. It will also be both a moment for reflection on the start of WW1 but also to raise funds for two very worthy charities’
