Commemorative Concert

Commemorating the Life and Service of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II

As a mark of respect for our Late Patron, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the musical content of this concert has been amended to provide an appropriate and fitting tribute to Her Majesty’s life and service to our Nation.

Our Commemorative Concert is a fantastic evening of music at the fabulous Billingham Forum, recognising the life and service of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. With the brilliant Royal Signals (Northern) Band and supporting artists from around the Region, it is sure to be a special evening. We also have the honour to be supported by North East national treasure, Pam Royle DL.

Over the years, the Band has supported us in many concerts.
