Beating Retreat

Beating Retreat
Fireworks - Massed Bands - Horses
14th and 15th June

Beating Retreat happens every June on the Wednesday and Thursday before the Queen's Birthday Parade (more commonly known as Trooping the Colour). This year it takes place on the 14th and 15th of June and it starts at 8pm on Horse Guards Parade.
It is a military musical parade featuring the Household Cavalry Musicians, horses, fireworks and true showmanship. These occasions are unique to Great Britain and London. It is a truly British event!

Military Beating Retreat concerts have a long tradition dating back to the 1690s. Originally the beating of the drum was used to order troops to break off fighting and withdraw to the safety of camp as darkness fell, later it signaled the closing of the camp gates at the end of the day and called troops back to base for the night. Today a Beating Retreat is an evening military concert with a marching display and usually marks the lowering of the Regimental flag at sunset.

Soldiers of the Household Division are instantly recognizable through their distinctive uniforms and headdress and have a history spanning over three centuries.

Invariably described as ‘truly spectacular’ and ‘London at its finest’ the Household Division Beating Retreat cannot be seen anywhere else in the world and is a not to be missed event.

Tickets are now available and the price range is from £15-£40; there is a 10% discount on group bookings, 10 or more tickets. Moreover, if the tickets are booked through the Household Division’s office (email maria@householddivision.org.uk), no office charges will be added to the price and we will print and send the tickets to a provided address.

See the Household Division’s website here for further information:




Grand National The results of the 2017 BHSC Grand National Draw are now on the Draw page. Our thanks to everyone who bought tickets – and our commiserations to those who failed to draw a favoured horse; perhaps next year?


 
Smartphone app

SMARTPHONE? TABLET?

Via the BH's popular smartphone 'app' you can now make online payments for caps and other items, and email the BH and MHC (and other) Secretaries — all via the app. This is complementary to the online payment pages of this website - you can use either, whichever is more convenient - and they offer the same facilities.

See the Help / Newsfeeds page for more details.

And, at the top left-hand corner of this page, you might have noticed a small blue box with three bars. Clicking it displays the menu vertically instead of horizontally and in much larger lettering. This is to help:
