Coldstream Guards to march into Swindon for charity concertPosted on 06th March 2016
The Band of the Regiment of H M Coldstream Guards, one of the oldest bands in the British Army, will be marching their way through the Wiltshire town on Swindon in aid of Combat Stress.
Combat Stress, which is the UK’s leading military charity, specialises in the care of veterans’ health and wellbeing.
The Coldstream Guards will be attending and performing as guests of the Swindon Male Voice Choir on Saturday March 19.
Speaking to the Swindon Advertiser, Gordie Smith, from the choir said: “It is very rare that Military Bands of this status are seen performing here in Swindon.
We would usually travel to London to see the band mounting the guard at Buckingham Palace or Windsor Castle, supporting state occasions such as Trooping the Colour, or making major contributions to the British Legion Festival at the Royal Albert Hall.”
The concert will take place at the Great Western Hall, in Steam, Firefly Avenue from 7.30pm and will be a spectacular event to see for those staying in luxury holiday cottages in Wiltshire.
