A GROUP of RAF musicians will take centre stage at a celebration of Armed Forces Day in Henley town centre tomorrow (Saturday).

The RAF Salon Orchestra, a seven-piece string and piano ensemble, will perform in Market Place from 10am to 4pm.

The event has been organised by the Royal British Legion Henley Community Poppy Appeal.

The musicians, who will be welcomed by Oxfordshire Deputy Lieutenant Cynthia Hall, will perform a wide repertoire from pop to classical and take requests from the audience, especially children.

There will be classic military vehicles and a Legion stall at the event with a selection of Poppy Appeal collectables, including a special lapel pins commemorating the Queen’s platinum jubilee.
