Beating Retreat 2016

Set on the historic Horse Guards Parade, against the magnificent backdrop of St James’s Park, The Massed Bands of The Household Division supported by The Mounted Band of the Household Cavalry, The Pipes and Drums of The Scots Guards, The Drums and Pipes of the Irish Guards, The Band of the Honourable Artillery Company and The Band of The Royal Yeomanry, perform a programme of rousing military and contemporary music.

This year we commemorate the bonds of friendship that thrive between the fifty-three countries.

Stirring music, precision drill, horses, cannons, lights and fireworks all combine to showcase the best of British military music and ceremonial pageantry in an unforgettable evening.
