The annual Royal British Legion Charity Gala Concert at the Lyric, Carmarthen this year is on Saturday 1st October, it is being produced for the Royal British Legion by Loud Applause Productions. This concert is in aid of the Poppy Appeal in South West Wales.
We are very excited and honoured to feature 3 well known bands: The Prince of Wales Division Military Band, the City of Swansea Pipe Band and the 215 (City of Swansea) Squadron Corps of Drums. This is very much a change from our normal concert as we have always invited a choir to perform.
Sharing the stage with the bands will be brothers Wynne Evans (Tenor) and Mark Llewelyn Evans (Baritone) - this is 'the icing on the cake'. To have them perform together at the Lyric, a place so close to their hearts, is a big coup - they are both such busy people but they felt it an honour to be invited.
This is going to be a massive concert this year and all in support of the poppy appeal in South West Wales. The evening will end with the poignant 'The Tribute to the Fallen' and the Service of Remembrance.
