Once again, the Rotary Club of Glastonbury and Street are delighted to have secured the services of the Band of ‘Her Majesty’s Royal Marines
The Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines is one of five Royal Marines Bands based around the United Kingdom. It can trace its direct historical lineage to 1767.
Royal Marines Band musical training is over 2 years long, during which time the trainees craft their musical and drill prowess. On entry to the RM Band the trainees spend a two week induction period at the Royal Marines School of Music at HMS Nelson in Portsmouth. However before they begin their Band training they need to earn the “Royal Marines” part of their title and they do this by spending 13 weeks at the Lympstone training base doing military training.
