The Royal Star and Garter Home

One of our loveliest concerts we've EVER played was at the Royal Star and Garter Home in Richmond.
This magnificent building is home to many ex-servicemen & women and widows/widowers of serving people whose disabilities mean that they need the care and attention that only a place like this can offer.
It was a privilege to play to so many fantastic people!
