Music of the Guns
Presented by the Fort Scratchley Historical Society, this event features the Australian Army Band of Newcastle plus guests at Fort Scratchley – where the guns become part of the band. The Australian Army Band is one of Australia's oldest military bands, serving almost continuously since at least 1870. Their diverse and progressive range of ensembles will amaze and inspire, as the band creates the sights and sounds culminating into the past, finishing with Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture.
This iconic Newcastle heritage site is the perfect spot for a patriotic event, being family friendly and a cultural experience for the whole community.
Guests can bring along a picnic, small chair or rug along with a bottle of wine, with gates opening at 5.30pm for the 6.30pm concert (concluding 8.30pm). Find tickets at www.civictheatrenewcastle.com.au
