On the 7th of July, I went down to RAF Halton for preparation for a performance with the ACO National Marching Band at RAF Fairford for the 75th parade in the presence of the commandant.

We arrived and had a practice on the Thursday evening to lay out how the parade will be, before returning to the block for uniform preparation. The parade included a march past by around 700 cadets from around the country.

The parade was great and was good to see so many cadets on parade! We then returned to Halton for some of us to prepare for another performance at DFSC Welbeck for the Senior Entry’s graduation parade on the Saturday.

The weekend was great, with excellent performances and was lovely to perform amongst fantastic musicians and cadets. Thank you for a wonderful weekend and I look forward to performing with you all again in August!
