We are a friendly bunch and always happy to welcome new players! We rehearse weekly during term time including half terms:
We do not ask new players to audition but we do have a 4 week "getting to know you" period before any commitment to join the band is made.
A considerable amount of the music we play is of approximately Grade 3 and above, however we are still happy to welcome any players who may not have reached that standard as yet.
As with all community bands there is a small subscription charge, payable every year. Among other things, this covers the rent of the rehearsal venue, insurance costs and new music.
The current subscription rates are as follows:
Individual membership for over 18's = £15 per academic term (£45 a year)
Individual membership for under 18's and students = £7.50 per academic term (£22.50 a year)
Please contact us via email if you are interested in joining the band or call the Musical Director, Dave Poste for a chat on 07799 382 366.
