By Royal Appointment

Assistant Principal Cornet, Stephen Bennett led the ceremonial fanfare trumpets of the Royal Air Force at a Service to mark the Centenary of the Royal Air Force on Tuesday 10th July 2018.


Pictured in the centre, Steve led the fanfare team through a polished performance which was attended by HM The Queen and members of the Royal family.


The Royal Air Force was formed towards the end of First World War on 1st April 1918.



Commenting on the event, Steve said "It was an amazing experience and was a good example of how brass instruments do not need to be played loud to be effective. It's more about the style and musicality for which Royal Air Force Music Services are known for".


Throughout various concerts this year, Blidworth Welfare Band has payed tribute to the RAF Centenary year by performing The Dambusters March.
