Join us on Friday 17 March at 12noon as we welcome The Band of HM Royal Marines, Scotland to Civic Square, Mossley Mill. The Band last visited the Borough in 2018 when they performed at Antrim Castle Gardens as part of the Council’s Summer Sunday Music Programme.

In their distinguishing white helmets, Royal Marines Bands are celebrated for the quality of their music, visual grandeur and precision drill. On the concert platform they enjoy a similar reputation ensuring their continuing popularity with their audiences. The Band’s repertoire includes popular classics, Big Band, stimulating contemporary works and entertaining solo features. The Corps of Drums bring movement, colour and the tradition of the ceremonial occasions integral to the Royal Marines.

Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Alderman Stephen Ross commented,

“I am delighted the Council is hosting The Band of HM Royal Marines, who I have no doubt will put on a sensational performance. This is a great opportunity to plan something different for all of the family over the Bank Holiday and what’s better, tickets are free.”

The Band is currently under the direction of Captain Tom Griffin RM who assumed command in July 2020. The performance will last for 30 minutes and limited tickets are available free of charge. For more information or to book tickets visit www.theatreatthemill.com.
