Also performing at the concert with the Band of the Royal Air Force Regiment will be two stunning choirs from Hereford Cathedral School.

The other is the Cantabile Girls’ Choir who were crowned Barnardo’s School Choir of the Year at the Royal Festival Hall in 2017.

David Evans, Director of Music at Hereford Cathedral School, said: “This is an incredible opportunity to see this world famous military band that regularly travels at home and overseas, as well as performing live BBC Radio broadcasts.
