Armed Forces Valentines Day Meal

Armed Forces

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, we were reminded of a nice Armed Forces Valentines Day Meal we played at at Tidworth Barracks


We were asked to play for a Armed Forces Valentines Day Meal that one of the regiments at Tidworth was holding. From time to time, particularly if a regiment is going to be spending time away soon, the army hold dinners for military personnel to invite their loved ones for a romantic dinner for two. We thought this was quite touching, and so selected a range of our more ‘romantic’ tunes for them to listen to.

Tables were laid out in twos (instead of the normal long-table format for mess dinners that we are used to seeing) and couples enjoyed a top meal while listening to us play. One lady told us she particularly enjoyed some of the pieces we played from Phantom of the Opera, her favourite musical.
