Musical Picnic

A musical picnic gathering for the audience to watch and listen to the collaboration between the British Army Band Colchester and the talented pupils and staff members of the RHS Band.


From the iconic tunes of Abba, Elton John and even the Tetris theme song, to the traditional "Land of Hope and Glory", there was something for everyone.

One spectator perfectly summed it up by saying, "An afternoon with a touch of paradise at the Royal Hospital School, with an outstanding choice of music and a mesmerizing performance by the combined bands. All this against the backdrop of the picturesque playing fields and the serene River Stour, bathed in the warm glow of the sun."

Thank you to all those who participated and attended to support ABF The Soldiers' Charity. Together we made a difference and showed our appreciation for the brave soldiers who protect our nation.
