The training band welcomes brass players of all ages and abilities as a stepping stone into the main band.


In 1987 a training band was set up on the inspiration of the then Musical Director, Tim Body. One of the objectives was to sustain the strength of the main band by ensuring a steady influx of ‘home grown’ talent from the training band.


Conducted by a dedicated conductor, and with the support from members of the main band who frequently drop by to join in, the training band is a great place to play music as a group, in a relaxed and friendly environment.


For over twenty years, lots of people have worked their way up through to the main band, and we’re always looking for more people to come and join in.
