A concert to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain Memorial Trust is set to provide a valuable fund-raising boost to the charity that looks after the National Memorial to the Few at Capel-le-Ferne.

The concert at the United Reformed Church in Folkestone on Saturday 22 August will be given by the Invicta Wind Orchestra, which attracts musicians from across the south east.

The proceeds from the concert, which will include William Walton’s music for the film The Battle of Britain, will be donated to the Battle of Britain Memorial Trust.

With the orchestra’s members including many former military players or teachers, the 40-strong woodwind, brass and percussion group is similar to a military band.

As well as Walton’s score, the programme will include a number of traditional military marches, including those used in the film, and the first performance of a new but traditional march called Spitfire, written by Hythe composer Richard Hubbert.

It will also feature composer Nigel Hess’s Scramble! and moving and reflective music by Martin Ellerby and Joseph Horovitz. The concert begins at 7.30pm. Tickets, at 10 (one concession) are available from Memorialconcert@outlook.com
