The Air Cadet band of 121 ( Nuneaton ) Squadron topped the bill of talented youngsters who starred in a charity gala organised by the Nuneaton Lions Club.
The fundraising gala which was held at the Bedworth Civic Hall saw some of the best local talent turn out to help support the Mayors Civic appeal which is supporting three good causes - Guide Dogs for the Blind, Hearing Dogs for the Deaf and the George Eliot Hospital 's stroke unit.
The Air Cadet Band opened the show as the cadet drummers marched down the steps from the back of the hall treating the audience to a stunning performance of the Squadrons March Medley. As the curtains drew back to reveal the brass section of the band they entertained the large and enthusiastic concert audience to a variety of wartime favourites, traditional marches and other popular tunes. During the bands performance the unsuspecting audience found themselves participants in the concert as Flt Lt Ian Crewe led the sing along.

Nuneaton Lion and Chairman of the Appeal Fund Councillor Richard Chattaway, who helped to organise the event said that the concert was one of the most successful in the club's history attracting a record audience. "We had a brilliant night" "We have managed to boost the Mayor's Civic Appeal fund to a staggering £11,500. I am thrilled with how it went, we could not have done this without the help and support of so many people and organisations like the Air Cadets.
