The sounds of Beethoven, Strauss and Tchaikovsky will fill St Mary Magdalene's Church at a commemorative concert to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo.

The concert, in aid of the Poppy Factory, features classic music performed by the Band and Bugles of the Rifles, one of the regiments that fought at Waterloo two centuries ago.

Classic music broadcaster Jamie Crick performs the role of master of ceremonies and all proceeds will go toward the Richmond charity's employability service which helps disable veterans find work.

The Battle of Waterloo took place on June 18, 1815, and the concert is held just two days before the bicentenary day.
