On 1st May The Royal British Legion welcomes you to a one night only special concert at the Mayflower Theatre, Southampton, to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of the Falklands and to honour Her Majesty, The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Guests on the night will be treated to a musical extravaganza, produced, and performed by the Celebrated Band of the Hampshire Constabulary along with key performances from the Mayflower Youth theatre and local stagecoach performing arts. Local Choirs across the community will be uniting together to perform at what’s set to be a fantastic night out for everyone! Claire Smith, Community Fundraiser for Hampshire South, said: “We have a full programme of stunning performances and acts to look forward to on this special night which will focus on several themes to honour our armed forces and emergency service communities. The concert will look to reflect on the Falklands 40th anniversary and to pay tribute to those involved in the conflict. The show will also have moments dedicated to thanking our armed forces and emergency services for their efforts during the Covid pandemic.
We are also looking forward to the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee during the concert which is a great cause for celebration and something for us all to look forward to.” “The funds raised from this spectacular concert will go towards supporting the Royal British Legion. The RBL’s work is even more vital than ever as we support people from all generations who have new hardships as a result of Covid -19 and the recent increase in living costs, which has had and will continue to have, a devastating impact on people’s livelihoods right across Hampshire, leaving some in our Armed Forces community in dire need of help and support.” Tickets are on sale now, starting at £20: British Legion Festival of Remembrance | Mayflower Theatre
