Main Band

The Main Band is looking to recruit a strong Third Cornet player in order to fill, our otherwise full compliment of players. Commitment to regular attendance each Monday and Wednesday evening is essential. Please email Jon Stringer via [email protected] if you are interested in this vacancy.


We are in the fortunate position of having every other seat filled, however we always welcome new players in our larger than standard size band. Please email Jon Stringer via, [email protected]  if you are interested in joining.
