INVITE THE TENTH
Studying the American Revolution in school? Having a Parade or Town Celebration? Add some history and color to your event by having the Tenth Regiment appear.
His Majesty's Tenth Regiment of Foot marching in the Needham, MA July 4th Parade with Colours waving and bayonets fixed.
Members of the Tenth Regiment routinely make visits to schools to provide an interactive program explaining the British soldier's point of view. The Regiment marches in Parades and participates in other activies associated with local celebrations. We also have appeared in various documentary films and even added a little color to a few weddings.
In 2012, the Tenth Regiment helped Mike Rowe film "How Booze Built America" for the Discovery Channel.
If interested, simply contact us to make arrangements. Generally, for school visits, we need at least a one month advance notice. Please contact Serjeant Rob Lee for more information. For Parades, Municipal Celebrations and other appearances, we need to know by February to get your event on our schedule. Please contact our Adjutant Major Michael V. Graves. Even if you still are planning your event and it is after February, please contact Major Graves to check our availability.

What does it cost? School visits are part of our educational mission and therefore are free, although we always are willing to accept donations to cover the costs of these programs. For Parades, we do charge a fee, but for this, you get the entire Regiment, Grenadiers, Light Infantry, Music, our Colours, and our Corps of Civilian Volunteers. Fees for other events may be negotiated depending upon the size and scope of your event.
