Guildhall Yard - Music!

Tuesday 5th July 2022

The Band of The Royal Yeomanry

The City of London Corporation invited us to a concert by The Band of the Royal Yeomanry in Guildhall Yard - the Mistress and I attended.

It was a fabulous summer’s evening, and we enjoyed an hour of music performed by The Band which is one of the oldest and finest in the Army Reserve. They still maintain their distinctive ceremonial uniform of French blue jacket and trousers, chain mailed shoulders, George boots and spurs, all topped off with flamboyant Chapka helmets!

Many of the band’s musicians are former members of the Household Division and other Regular Army bands. The rest include freelance professional musicians, instrumental teachers and graduates

We were treated to a selection of military marches, classic film scores and light music – including music from the original Top Gun movie and Elvis!
