RM Band Plymouth

RM Band Plymouth is based at HMS Raleigh in Torpoint, Cornwall. The band undertakes a wide variety of ceremonial work of national importance, as well as fulfilling its main role of providing music for the ships and establishments of the Royal Navy.


A typical week‘s work for RM Band Plymouth could include a ceremonial parade for a visiting head of state, several Beating Retreat displays for the general public, a fanfare for the opening of a new prestigious building, a concert, an evening dance and a cabaret display, as well as providing orchestral background music for naval dinners. 
All members of the Royal Marines Band Service are also fully trained military personnel. When deployed, they typically perform logistical and support duties, as well as providing entertainment for troops deployed overseas.
