Do you play a brass instrument and would you like to join us and be part of this exciting new venture? We are happy to work with people of all ages and experience who are returning to playing brass or with those who would like to learn for the first time.


We meet most Wednesdays, but it is advisable to check with the band to arrange a first visit. Contact details are on the band's website
