It is a spectacular evening of music and military precision drill, including horses, cannon and fireworks.

THE HOUSEHOLD DIVISION BEATING RETREAT 2019 ‘SOLDIERS OF THE QUEEN”
With more than six hundred world-renowned musicians and one hundred horses, performing in London’s finest setting, the 2019 Household Division Beating Retreat is a spectacle not to be missed.
Stirring music, precision drill, horsemanship, dramatic lighting and fireworks, will all combine in an unforgettable, thrilling evening of music and pageantry, celebrating the “Soldiers Of The Queen”.
A must-see event, this impressive programme of rousing military and contemporary music will be performed by the finest musicians of the Massed Bands of the Guards and the Countess of Wessex’s String Orchestra, on the historic Horse Guards Parade, against the magnificent backdrop of St James’s Park. They will be joined this year by The Mounted Band of the Household Cavalry, The King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery, the Royal Choral Society, and guest performers The Band and Pipes of the Royal Guard of Oman and The Pipes & Drums of The Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders of Canada.
Beating Retreat takes place over two nights only and is the perfect prelude to the public celebrations by these same soldiers for Her Majesty The Queen’s Birthday, the pinnacle of Britain’s ceremonial pomp and display. Join us for The Household Division Beating Retreat and enjoy an evening that showcases the very best of British: our very finest military music, ceremonial and pageantry, right in the heart of London.
Tickets as from £20.
