We currently are particularly in need of a Euphonium, Bb/ Eb Bass, Front row and Cornet players.

Come and Join Us

We are a community band rather than a contesting band so our numbers are not limited.
The band rehearses on a Friday night 7:30 – 9:30 and Tuesday afternoon 2:00 – 4:00
We also have training groups which meet on Friday between 6:00 and 7:15.
Beginners and lapsed players receive free tuition from experienced members. All ages from 8 upwards are invited. There are some instruments available to borrow.
We are not sponsored so all running costs are paid from engagment fees, subscriptions and donations. If you would like to donate please follow the link.
