HM Royal Marines Band Collingwood to visit

 

A band with an impressive pedigree will raise money for three Island causes this week and help young music students.

The Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines Collingwood will perform at Castle Rushen High School on Wednesday (July 2) as guests of Arbory Church and the Friends of Manx National Heritage.

And they will then hold a workshop with music students at the school and King William's College.

 

Funds raised will be shared between the Friends of Mann National Heritage, Arbory Church and the local Sea Cadet unit at TS Manxman.

Tickets for the concert are available from Thompson Travel in Port Erin, Celtic Gold in Peel, and Noa Bakehouse in Douglas.

One of the promoters Phil Smith says the event offers an invaluable opportunity for young people to play alongside skilled musicians and talk to them about their careers:
