Top Army Band to return to Chorley this October

After a very successful visit to Chorley last year, one of the Army’s top regimental bands is returning for a concert at Chorley Town Hall on Sunday, 14th October.

The Royal Gibraltar Regiment Band, along with their Corps of Pipes and Drums, are coming back to the UK – Chorley will be their only appearance outside London and the South East of England.

Commenting on the band’s return to Chorley, Lindsay Hoyle, the MP for Chorley and Chairman of the Chorley Remembers project said: “We had a great night last year, with a promise of a return to Chorley, and are pleased to welcome the band back. We are looking forward to another entertaining evening”.

Echoing his comments, event organiser, Steve Williams said: “Over two hundred people came last year and all went away saying that the band were excellent. We have three hundred tickets available this year and hope to make it a sell out”.
