Bardi Wind Prepare for return to De Montfort Hall to celebrate 200 years of the RNLI

29th May 2024

For their annual De Montfort Hall charity concert on 9th June, the Bardi Wind Orchestra are helping the Royal National Lifeboat Institution to celebrate their 200th Anniversary year!

With a theme of ‘Fantasy and Adventure’, the concert will feature well-loved music from Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Wars, Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings. 

The orchestra, in association with Oadby and Wigston Lions, were invited to do this concert after last year’s highly successful event when, on a sweltering June day one of the crew from the Skegness Lifeboat took to the stage to talk about the work of the RNLI in his full waterproof seagoing kit! A small inflatable lifeboat stationed outside the De Montfort Hall attracted considerable attention but fortunately did not have to be put out to sea. 

This year’s concert will be conducted by guest conductor Dan Watson, and bets are currently on as to whether he will don a pair of yellow wellingtons to conduct some of the second half as did BWO’s Music Director David Calow last year! Join the Bardi Wind for a great summer afternoon of music on 9th June at 3pm at De Montfort Hall.
