In celebration of our beloved friend, Sid Davis, the former Flavel Arts Centre General Manager and Conductor of The Big Band of Britannia Royal Naval College, the Band will play a selection of Big Band favourites.

Sid sadly passed away in May 2021 having battled with Motor Neurone Disease in the previous 18 months. He was a larger than life character who started his musical journey in the Royal Marines Band Service where he enjoyed a long and distinguished career ending in the rank of Bandmaster. Sid was an avid fan of Big Band music and loved to play and listen to the American greats including Leonard Bernstein and George Gershwin.

Join us to celebrate the life of Sid and enjoy some amazing music played by his old band!
