Tours De Force: A Musical History

Royal Australian Navy band

Army, Navy and Air Force bands have long supported Forces Entertainment tours in various theatres of war and peacekeeping.

In this event, guests will take a musical journey through time as the Royal Australian Navy Band perform songs popular from the First World War through to the present day.

Between music, members of the RAN Band will share tales from their time performing as part of Forces Entertainment alongside singers, comedians and actors.

Light refreshments will be provided after the performance and guests will have the opportunity to explore the Shrine’s exhibition Tours De Force: Entertainers on the front line.

This event is free for Shrine Friends* and volunteers using their discount codes. Bookings are essential.
