Mountbatten Festival of Music 2016

Last month a group of supporters of the SeaMore Appeal along with few representatives of the National Museum of the Royal Navy Fundraising Team attended the Mountbatten Festival of Music at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

As the organisers describe: ‘the Festival was originally conceived to honour the connection between the Royal Marines Band Service and Sir Malcolm Sargent, the Honorary Music Advisor to the Royal Marines (for over twenty years). In 1980 it was renamed in honour of Earl Mountbatten of Burma, who was Life Colonel Commandant of the Royal Marines until his untimely death in 1979.’
