The Gurkha Welfare Trust is delighted to bring the world-renowned Band of the Brigade of Gurkhas to the City for a concert on Friday 21st October.
The Gurkhas are soldiers from Nepal who are recruited into the British Army (or the Indian Army), and for the last 200 years have committed themselves to the service of the British Crown.
With previous Gurkha Band concerts being described as ‘a night at the proms – Gurkha style!’, the evening looks set to be an epic one. The performance will include a lively mix of Western and Nepali music, a selection of rousing military tunes, and feature the famous Kukri Dance.
Events and Community Coordinator Keta Hunt says: ’I am so excited to bring such a unique band here for what promises to be a fantastic event. What’s more, the proceeds raised will all go towards our vital work supporting veterans and their families in Nepal.
Although we’re known UK-wide and have a presence of over 500 staff in Nepal itself, not many people realise that our headquarters are actually in Salisbury. It feels really special to bring the Gurkha Band to our “hometown”. We hope as many people as possible will come out to this one-night-only event.”
The concert will be at St Paul’s Church, Fisherton St on Friday 21st October and tickets start from just £15, available via the Trust’s website gwt.org.uk.
