We’re very excited that Bader’s Big Band will be playing at Bentley Priory Museum tomorrow, 17th August, at 2.00pm.
This promises to be a great event and marks further progress by the Band whose musicians are going from strength to strength. It will be wonderful to see (and hear!) how far they’ve come and in such a beautiful and fitting venue.
…a fun afternoon of upbeat music, with this special performance by Bader’s Big Band.
I’ll post a report following the concert hopefully with some musical links for you as well. Watch this space.
About Bentley Priory:
Bentley Priory is an eighteenth to nineteenth century stately home and deer park in Stanmore on the northern edge of the Greater London area in the London Borough of Harrow. It was originally a medieval priory or cell of Augustinian Canons in Harrow Weald, then in Middlesex.
Located within a Grade 11* listed Mansion House in Stanmore, Bentley Priory also has huge relevance to the life of Douglas Bader as the Museum tells one of the most important narratives of modern history – how the Battle of Britain was won.
Bentley Priory was Headquarters Fighter Command during the Battle of Britain, and the Museum explores how technology, leadership and courage forged victory, enabling Britain’s darkest hour to also be her finest hour.
The Museum highlights the contribution and importance of ‘The One‘, Air Chief Marshal Sir Hugh Dowding, ‘The Few‘, the aircrew who took to the skies to defend Britain, and ‘The Many‘, without whose tireless work on the ground victory would not have been possible.
