photo 2 (7)One of the world’s premier military bands will headline at a big charity family fun day in Taunton this Saturday.

The Band of the Irish Guards will be part of a six-hour Somerset Military Tattoo spectacular of fun on Taunton Racecourse.

They will be joined by The Royal Electrical & Mechanical Engineers (REME) Parachute Display Team alongside family shows, military displays, stalls, an assault course, fun fair, food and refreshments and much more.

Organiser Brig Nick Knudsen comments: “This is going to be an amazing event.

“Securing the services of the Band of the Irish Guards is a major bonus.

“The band plays at nearly all major state occasions and is one of five bands in the Foot Guards Regiments in the Household Division whose main role is to guard the British monarch.”

All the proceeds for the event will go to ABF – the soldier’s charity.

The event is sponsored by local solicitors Pardoes and Yeovil-based Agusta Westland with the support of BBC Somerset and official media partners the Somerset County Gazette, and Business Leader.
