Spectators enjoy the spectacular display of marching and music! thumbnail

BALLYMENA town Centre resounded to the Band of Her Majesty's Royal Marines Scotland last week in a spectacular display of marching and music!
Mid and East Antrim Borough Mayor, councillor Audrey Wales, welcomed the Royal Marines to The Braid before their spectacular outdoor performance, parade, Beating Retreat and Ceremonial Sunset in the presence of Her Majesty's Lord Lieutenant for County Antrim, Joan Christie.
Highlights included popular classics, big band music, contemporary works and entertaining solo features.
Councillor Wales said: "A warm, sunny evening helped draw hundreds of spectators to attend the event and I'm sure they thoroughly enjoyed the spectacle as the Royal Marines Band continued their successful visit to Northern Ireland.
“I certainly enjoyed the performance as did all our guests including Her Majesty's Lord Lieutenant for County Antrim, Joan Christie who took the salute."
