The Light Cavalry Band

 

The Light Cavalry Band was formed on the 12th of June 2006 following the amalgamation of The Royal Lancers Band and The Band of the Hussars and Light Dragoons in the reorganisation of Army Music as part of Future Army Structures (FAS).   The Band provides musical support to its affiliated regiments; The Queen’s Royal Hussars, The 9th/12th Royal Lancers, The King’s Royal Hussars, The Light Dragoons and The Queen’s Royal Lancers and the wider Army. Based in Bovington, Dorset, The Light Cavalry Band is one of only two Royal Armoured Corps bands still in existence today.

 

Under the Direction of Captain AR Adams, the Light Cavalry Band has played at many prestigious events including Buckingham Palace and The Edinburgh Military Tattoo.  The Band has also performed in many locations across Europe including the Nice Tattoo and the Lourdes Military pilgrimage in 2007.

 

 The summer of 2008 saw the band provide musical support for RMA Sandhurst where they played for both the King of Jordan and the Sultan of Bahrain.

 In 2009 the band was tasked with Royal Duties in Edinburgh for Her Majesty the Queen closely followed with a successful tour of Canada playing at the world famous Spruce Meadows show jumping event.

 In 2010 the Band has many ‘themed’ concerts in their local Tank Museum. In June the band travelled to the Falkland Islands for the Liberation Day Parades. The band has recently played at a Buckingham Palace Garden Party.

 Thank you

As a result of the Concert a cheque for £241.67 was handed to Captain Adams for The Corps of Army Music, this amount was half the profits from the concert evening. Lulworth responders benefitted with the same amount.

Thank you to everyone who supported the evening and also to everyone who helped make this enjoyable evening possible. We hope to do a simular thing next year. We will keep you posted.
