About The Central Band of the Royal British Legion
The Central Band is the flagship band of The Royal British Legion.
Under the baton of the energetic Captain David Cole, former Director of Music on HMY Britannia, the Central Band has established itself as a respected and in-demand ensemble.
The band’s busy schedule has seen recent performances at the Royal Albert Hall, the Championship Finals at Wimbledon, Westminster Abbey, London’s Guildhall and joint projects with the London Mozart Players and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
In 2021 ITN asked the Band to record the National Anthem for use in the Queen's annual Christmas broadcast; 2021 marked the centenary year of the Royal British Legion.
