The Gurkha Welfare Trust welcomes the Band of the Brigade of Gurkhas to Salisbury on 21st October. The band will play a special concert at St Paul’s Church in the city featuring a lively mix of Western and Nepali music and a selection of military tunes that will also feature the famous ‘Kukri dance’. It will be the first time the band has visited the city.
“I am so excited to bring such a unique band here for what promises to be a fantastic event. What’s more, the proceeds raised will all go towards our vital work supporting veterans and their families in Nepal,” said Keta Hunt, events and community coordinator at the Trust. “Although we’re known UK-wide and have a presence of over 500 staff in Nepal itself, not many people realise that our headquarters are actually in Salisbury and so it feels really special to bring the Gurkha Band to our ‘hometown’. We hope as many people as possible will come out to this one-night-only event.”
Proceeds from the concert will be used by the Trust to provide vital financial, medical, and development aid to Gurkha veterans, their families, and communities in Nepal. Tickets cost £15 with more information available from https://www.gwt.org.uk/concert-salisbury
