The Farnborough Concert Band of the Royal British Legion Proms Extravaganza

The 2019 ‘Poppy Proms’ will be held at the Princes Hall, Aldershot on Saturday, 12th October 2019 at 7.30 pm. This concert is in aid of the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal and Topic of Cancer, a charity based in Guildford carrying out research into fighting cancer using the body’s immune system. The 35+ musicians of the Farnborough Concert Band of the Royal British Legion will be directed by Mark Atkins and will play a lively mix of music but, as always, the evening concert will finish with the usual patriotic finale including ‘Land of Hope and Glory’ and ‘Rule Britannia’.

This is always a very annual popular concert with several thousand pounds raised for the two charities. You are advised to book early to be sure of a seat.

History of the proms concert

The Aldershot Proms Extravaganza has now been running for 21 years. It is specifically aimed at raising funds for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal, but other charities have also benefited from the public's generosity at attending these concerts.

This continued support has enabled the band to donate over £100,000 to the Poppy Appeal and the following charities:

As always, these concerts are a musical feast of film, pop, show music all ending with a patriotic finale of Rule Britannia and Land of Hope and Glory, giving everyone present a feel good factor about all things British.
