The Guards Museum, London

June 6th, 2021 An update from
Andrew Wallis, MBE, Director, Guards Museum

With more than a year of zero revenue has seen our meagre reserves dwindle significantly. Nevertheless, we are not despondent and we are set to ‘come out swinging’ as we re-emerge from closure.

For many years the museum has enjoyed a strong relationship with the Guards Bands. The bands have also been out of the public eye due to the government’s ban on crowds gathering. In the coming month I am delighted to share with you that:

State Ceremonial Concert Series is back

June 29 June — July 4
The lunchtime concerts are free for all to enjoy. Details at LINK HERE

We have formed a column of mutual support to put on a
Military Music Spectacular on Horseguards Parade
July 20th, 21st and 22nd (concerts are at various time please consult schedule)
To book tickets and for full details LINK HERE

The museum is acting as the underwriter for the production costs of the show and we are using it to re-launch’ the museum. There will be several hundred Musicians on Parade and we hope to have some high-profile guests to take the salute…Secretary of State for Defence, the Princess Royal and the Prime Minister.

The museum expects to open in late June to assist with the week-long Household Division Music Festival and to prepare for the July spectacular.

To our American friends and patrons, we thank you for your support and hope you may be able to join us in London this Summer or very shortly.
