Aldershot Proms 2018

The Farnborough Concert Band of the Royal British Legion Proms Extravaganza

The 2018 Proms Extravaganza will be held at Princes Hall on Saturday 13th October 2018 in aid of the Poppy Appeal and KatCanDo (Frimley Appeal for Cancer Patients). The 40 musicians of the Farnborough Concert Band of the Royal British Legion will be joined by Soprano Helen Clutterbuck and the Savoy Singers. There'll be a wide selection of music from the theatre, music from the movies and more traditional classical works.

You can expect the evening concert to finish with the usual patriotic finale as both Helen and the band join together to lead the audience in a round of Land of Hope and Glory and Rule Britannia.

Last year's concert was very popular and several thousand pounds was raised for the two charities. You are advised to book early this year to be sure of a seat.

The history of the Aldershot Proms

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 nearly £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.
