The Sovereign’s Concert is set to return to Lincoln for the third year in a row on Saturday 14th April 2018.

Organised by Lincolnshire Army Cadet Force (ACF) the Sovereign’s Concert features cadet musicians from around the country and for the first time will also feature The Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue Concert Band.

Senior Adult Volunteer, Second Lieutenant James Wood explained: “The entire concert is a celebration of Lincolnshire’s strong musical scene and the brilliance of youth music around the country.

“Our combined band made up of musicians from all over the United Kingdom will include an incredible 85 musicians and promises to be one of the largest concerts of its kind.

“This is the first year that we have had a non-ACF band on stage with us which is a real step forward in showing our band’s musical development.”

There will be musicians from Derbyshire, Hampshire and Gwent and Powys Army Cadet Forces.

The concert follows no set genre and aims to appeal to as wide an audience as possible, with music ranging from Disney to Pomp and Circumstance.

James added: “The programme has been carefully tailored to ensure that there is never a dull moment and that everyone of all ages and backgrounds will find something for them.

“There will also be some surprises throughout the concert that will keep the audience on the edge of their seats.”

The concert takes place at The Venue which is located at Bishop Grosseteste University in Lincoln, with tickets priced at £8 for adults and £5 for children, OAPs and veterans, all proceeds will be reinvested into the ACF band.

Tickets are available to purchase in advance through The Venue’s website but a limited amount will be available on the door.

“The entire concert is a celebration of Lincolnshire’s strong musical scene and the brilliance of youth music around the country."
