Event Info

Come and enjoy a programme of music from the Band and Drums of the Royal Welsh Regiment as we celebrate the lighting of the Jubilee Beacon.

The Regimental Band of the Royal Welsh is one of the very few all brass bands within British Army Music. The Band is regularly seen performing ceremonial duties such as Royal Gun Salutes, freedom parades and of course in front of rugby fans worldwide at the Principality Stadium. Tonight the Band is joined by the Corps of Drums of the 3rd Battalion the Royal Welsh, who can be identified by their famous white colonial helmets. Six members of the Band and Drums were recently mobilised for Operation Rescript, the armed forces support to the NHS during the COVID Pandemic.

The Cardiff Beacon will join Beacons throughout the UK which will all be lit at 9.45pm and will be followed by a short firework display
