The Brass & Choral Gala Concert was put together in aid of the Royal Free Hospital and it threw together a very odd and eclectic programme - two brass bands, a choir, a crossover singer, a solo cornetist, and a comedic brass group. The ensemble was given the privilege to perform in the prestigious Royal Festival Hall, located a couple of hundred yards away from the London Eye.

The show required much stage movement due to so many acts coming on and off of the stage and requiring different equipment. To fill in those time consuming intervals, the audience were entertained by the lively and enthusiastic host Jumoke Fashola who relished interacting with the audience and discussed the respect and admiration she had for the acts with clear and infectious conviction.
