The Central Band of the Royal Air Force
One of the finest military bands in the country, the Central Band of the RAF, is coming to Exeter on 25 October in an exciting and very special charity concert.
Along with its big band, ‘Royal Air Force Squadronaires’, the band will be performing as part of a national concert tour to celebrate the 15th Anniversary of the RAF Music Charitable Trust, which serves an important role in raising welfare funds for various service charities.
Sit back and enjoy an eclectic mix of music from the movies, shows, classical, swing and marches in an action-packed performance showcasing the wonderful musical talents of our Royal Air Force in a concert that is not to be missed.
Tickets £10 – £20, concessions for HM Forces, Veterans, Students & Under 18s
The Royal Air Force Music Charitable Trust
The Royal Air Force Music Charitable Trust was established in December 2003 by Malcolm Goodman MBE (Honorary Administrator), who was then serving with the Band of the RAF Regiment, and as Public Relations and Marketing Manager for the RAF Music Services. Following the appointment of former Chief of the Air Staff, Air Chief Marshal Sir Michael Graydon GCB CBE as its President, the charity was subsequently registered with the Charity Commission in January 2004.
With its charitable objects ‘Raising welfare funds through the performance of live music by Royal Air Force musicians’, the charity primarily organises fund raising concerts in locations where the bands might otherwise not be able to perform. Through these concerts and the sale of RAF Music CDs and merchandise, the charity raises funds from which donations are also made to various RAF and other Service charities. However, as RAF musicians now routinely undertake operational deployments in support of H M Forces around the world, the charity also provides welfare support whilst deployed ‘out of area’.
