Armed Forces Day Celebrations with Royal Air Force Salon Orchestra

Henley Poppy Appeal is honoured to welcome the RAF Salon Orchestra to Henley Market Place to serenade you all on Saturday 25 June 10.00-4.00pm

These accomplished musicians who are in active service keeping us safe often perform at Royal events, but for RAF high flyers they remain thoroughly grounded entertainers. They will play a varied repertoire, and take your requests whether classical, pop, or anything you fancy. And they take special pleasure in playing children’s songs.

The Royal Air Force musicians will be greeted by The Royal British legion’s Patron Her Majesty The Queen’s official representative in Henley, Deputy Lieutenant Lady Cynthia Hall.

There will also be classic military vehicles and an RBL stall with a selection of year-round Poppy collectables including special Poppy lapel pins commemorating Her Majesty’s Platinum jubilee. All proceeds will go towards funding the vital welfare and other support RBL provide to the Armed Forces community.

Come and show your support for our Armed Forces community. It will be an enjoyable day and a great start to the Henley Season!

All are encouraged to take photos and videos at the event and share them online, tagging @HenleyPoppies and #SaluteOurForces
