An evening of Big Band and Jazz performed by  


An Evening of Big Band and Jazz

On the Eve of D-Day, join us for a virtual concert performed by the British Army Band Colchester featuring their Big Band and Jazz Group on Saturday 5th June 2021 at 7:30pm.

Our Bedfordshire Committee normally hosts its annual, highly anticipated Reception and Beating Retreat in June each year. Under the current COVID-19 restrictions it is not possible for us to get together this year with a physical performance. However, the show must go on! We have taken this year’s event virtual so you can still enjoy this fantastic event.

Following the success of our Virtual Christmas Concert, we have once again teamed up with The British Army Band Colchester to bring you a virtual concert featuring Big Band, Jazz and much more!

This is another great opportunity to see The British Army Band Colchester doing what it does best, performing and showcasing outstanding musical skills.
