Seafarers UK, the leading maritime charity, comes to the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre for the first time with the Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines Portsmouth.

Join Seafarers UK on Saturday, December 1 and experience the delights of this truly exciting musical and military spectacle, including traditional, classical, big band sound and vocals!

This annual concert is always a local favourite as Seafarers UK brings you an evening of wonderful entertainment from the talented musicians of the Royal Marines Band Service.

All proceeds go to Seafarers UK. The charity raises funds for those who have been in the Royal Navy and Royal Marines, the Merchant Navy and Britain’s Fishing Fleets.

In 2017 Seafarers UK granted over £3m to over 60 maritime charities. In addition to Seafarers UK’s wider grant funding programme, the charity is currently focusing in particular on four core areas of need: the fishing community, the ‘future’ and those training for a career at sea, the ‘family’ and the dependants of seafarers, as well as working seafarers.

This was a special year for Seafarers UK as the charity, (originally King George’s Fund for Sailors) celebrated its centenary in 2017.

    I am curious as to how a small theatre will be a good enough venue for such a marvellous display. I love this kind of entertainment and the thrilling sound of a brass band of such quality as this. Good luck to all.
