The Royal Marines Band will perform in a fundraising concert in Weston-super-Mare in September.
All proceeds from the show will go towards Weston RNLI’s new lifeboat station.
The RNLI is hoping to build a new station at the former Cove restaurant by Marine Lake.
It still needs to formalise some of the legal agreements and complete surveys, but its fundraising efforts are starting again ahead of any building work starting.
The RNLI’s fundraising for a new station started in 2013 when the condition of Birnbeck Pier became too dangerous for crews to use the station on the island.
The charity has already raised more than £500,000 towards the new station.
The Royal Marines Band from HMS Raleigh, in Cornwall, will perform at The Playhouse, in High Street, on September 23 at 2.30pm.
Tickets, priced £25, are available from www.theplayhouse.co.uk or 01934 645544.
