In accordance with current advice given by the Government and by Brass Band England, we have recently begun outdoor rehearsals and accepting outdoor bookings. Any information about future activities given on this website may change if the guidance changes. We hope to see you again soon. Stay safe!
We always welcome new players.
The Main Band is open to anyone who can hold a part and is keen to improve.
The Training Band is open to child beginners, adult beginners and adult returners (those who played as a child but gave up, for example, on leaving school). For beginners, we suggest that you are ready to come to the Training Band when you can both read and play a C scale although lessons for complete beginners can often be arranged.
For both bands, subject to availability, we can provide an instrument and uniform. We can also provide advice on buying or hiring an instrument of your own.
If, after you have read through this section, you have any questions see our FAQs or contact us.
