Grab a chance to see the Romford Drum and Trumpet Corps at the Whittlesey Festival on Sunday September 11.

The youth military style marching band, based in Havering, was founded in 1957 and is one of the oldest independent youth marching bands in the country.

They have performed throughout the UK, Europe and USA with marching displays, parades, carnivals and concerts and have previously appeared at the Royal Variety Performance.

The band’s music portfolio covers military marches, film themes, popular music and brass classics often with solos from talented musicians across their brass, woodwind and percussion sections.

The band will be playing at different intervals during the day and there will be an amazing festival finale as they join with the Peterborough Highland Band for a spectacular Massed Band Sound.
