The band consists of:
* experienced players who have been in banding for years
* players who have achieved a moderate playing standard who just enjoy playing
* people who have either started to learn later in life or children just beginning to
take their first steps in banding

As a non competitive band we are not restricted to the standard brass band instrumentation of 25 players. We therefore actively encourage new members to join us and play in the position of their choice.

Meet our band at Friday rehearsal.
