Joining Us

New Members:  Unless we have too many players in a particular section, we welcome any wind instrument player. There are no formal auditions or entry requirements. All you need is:

  • your instrument
  • the ability to read music
  • to be able to follow the conductor’s downbeat

For most instruments, there is more than one part, suiting different playing abilities. 

How does this sound to you? Would you like to join us?

Contact us by emailing, or calling, our secretary, Dinah:

  • 07772 048427

We’d love to hear from you.

Subscriptions: Our subscriptions for each year are due from January. For 2019 the subscription is £65. (This is likely to be increased to £75 for 2020.) We feel that this remains good value for money. The more members we get – the greater chance of the subscriptions reducing; in order to share out the costs of paying for our musical director, for the room hire for rehearsals and for new music.

Gift Aid: Please note that the Band is registered as a Charitable organisation.  It would be great if you could sign ‘Gift Aid’ forms so we could reclaim the tax.  Our preferred payment method is by Bank transfer.
