Pride of Cadet Musicians at Altcar

Nearly 400 Cadet Musicians from all over the Country arrived at Altcar Camp for a week of intensive training on their different instruments, including, drums, bugles, flutes, trombones, plus others. Split into six groups, depending on their skills, they improved the quality of their music talent being taught by military professionals including regulars top musicians from the different Guards Regiments.

During the week, their top band, together with the Corps of Drums, gave a performance before locals, for the Royal British Legion to raise funds for their Poppy Appeal.

It all built up to the Final Parade when a service was held. Each Band marched on and demonstrated their skills with a Massed Bands finale. The day finished with a Cadet Tex Factor competition with the top ten Cadets doing solo acts.

At the beginning of the week, most had come together as individuals but by the end of the week, they finished as a successful team. Some do it as they enjoy playing their different instruments and others because they wish to go into Military Bands or Civilian Orchestras. However it all proved a great success!
